Chrystel Contreras

HR Generalist

I have spent the past sixteen years managing HR, accounting and administration departments for multiple start-up to mid-size companies. At this point in my career I prefer to work with companies that create more than profits; and care about the people they service beyond dollar signs.

I have a B.S. in Business Administration from California State University, Dominguez Hills and attended California State University, Long Beach for my MBA. I also currently hold two HR certifications (PHR and PHRca).

 I originally hail from Los Angeles, CA. and am your typical SoCal native. I’ve been a beach bum since before I could walk and in my spare time you can find me playing beach volleyball, surfing, or walking my rescued pittie (Dolce) along the beach. I also enjoy reading, writing, dancing, learning Italian, and traveling. Luckily, my fours years in the navy afforded me the luxury to travel around the world on Uncle Sam’s tab. Kenya, Florence, and Singapore were my favorite port visits. The two destinations left on my bucket list are Athens and Cairo.
