Back Pocket HR

I get it, you're busy running your organization, and you definitely don't need an HR pro taking up your time all the time.  But, when you need the support, you REALLY NEED IT.

That's why I created BPHR.  So you can get exactly the help you need when you need it. 


Back Pocket HR is a suite of offers that meet you where your're at as your organization grows. . .

As an entrepreneur or non-profit executive, you need HR when you need it.  You don't need full time HR help, but  you want a trusted HR resource available when things come up.

Like navigating illness in the time of COVID
or the first pregnancy in your company 
or a new recruitment strategy
or that employee who just isn't working out

Back Pocket HR is a shortcut to a trusted HR professional who will work with you on your most pressing needs.
