My name is Kristina Butler, PHR, SHRM-CP, also known as The Virtual Six-Figure Mom. I have over 15 years of experience in Human Resources, Recruiting, Relationship Management, and Sales Support PLUS I've worked from home since 2012, currently for a large financial services organization. In addition to being the single working mom of two beautiful girls (18 and 9), I am what many refer to as a working daughter. My parents are aging and I have become a significant source of support for them in a number of areas. Please understand that I wouldn't trade either of these roles for anything in the world and I am convinced that working from home has truly been life-saving. I invested in my professional growth for years and earned numerous certifications along the way. I reached a point, however, where going into the office added a level of stress and absence that I could no longer accept as the standard for my life. My oldest daughter was diagnosed with ADHD and my father's health began to decline. Sitting in an office with all of that on my mind simply ceased to be practical. I needed flexibility and that's exactly what I was determined to get. In my spare time, I LOVE to prepare meals at home and travel whenever possible. Home is now North Carolina, but I am a native New Yorker and consider Puerto Vallarta my second home even though I haven't lived there...YET!
