Hi, I'm Kathy Yost, a seasoned HR executive and Certified Coach with over 15 years of experience. Currently, I lead HR operations at Morningstar Corporation, where I've successfully managed teams of up to 800 employees, streamlined processes, and saved millions in operational costs. As a woman navigating a predominantly male industry, and someone who is audhd and in recovery from alcohol use disorder, I bring a unique perspective to the table. I understand the challenges of overcoming personal and professional obstacles and am passionate about helping others do the same. Throughout my career, I've led major HR initiatives, improved employee retention, and implemented innovative HR systems. I'm also a writer for "She's Got Issues," where I share my insights and experiences. I want to become a mentor because I believe in the power of support and guidance. Having faced and overcome significant challenges myself, I know how valuable it is to have someone in your corner who understands and can provide practical advice. I’m committed to helping others achieve their goals, navigate their careers, and turn their challenges into opportunities. Let’s work together to build a successful future.
