Kirsten holds a strategic role at HSR, playing a key part in the senior management team working directly with Clare and Michael Hamilton. As one of its primary team members since joining in January 2019, she has been instrumental in growing the hospital’s structure, team, human resources and operational processes. Her role continues to be extremely varied heading up the HR function, learning & development, overseeing all operational aspects of the hospital, process optimisation, organisational structure and strategic planning to support the future growth of the team.

Qualified CIPD Level 7 in Human Resources and Strategic People Management, Kirsten has a passion for implementing industry led CIPD best practice, employee wellbeing, career development and organisational effectiveness and sees this as key to enabling HSR to achieve the highest levels of client service and patient care. Her accreditations in PPA DISC profiling, GIA (general intelligence) and TEIQue (emotional intelligence) and Mental Health First Aid Champion qualification, support her focus on employee wellbeing, development, training, coaching and enabling team members to meet their career aspirations through personal growth and development.

With over 25 years of people management experience, the last 18 years has seen Kirsten focus on senior level operational management and HR. Passionate about working with and through people, she has extensive experience in achieving operational excellence and developing highly engaged teams, with a strong track record in people development and delivering best practice. Her early career saw her achieve a highly successful personal sales record and gain wide experience in vocational training and information technology, progressing her skills into senior level positions in sales, operations, marketing and client care, culminating in a move into HR across multiple sectors and a variety of industries.

Outside of work, Kirsten has an adorable Chihuahua/Pekingese Romanian rescue dog Peggy, and a beautiful young competition horse called Patsy.
