Brittney Barbe (pronounced Barb not Barbie – she should’ve kept her maiden name!) challenges HR professionals to stop asking permission to sit at the table and build the table themselves. Her expertise as a HR leader spans across the IT, manufacturing and hospitality industries to enable her to reinvent what HR is, should be, and will become. Now, as a new entrepreneur, Brittney is taking the HR industry by storm through consulting, speaking and re-inventing the conversation on how HR professionals contribute to our organizations.
Brittney is SHRM-CP certified, HR consultant, blogger and speaker. Brittney sits on the board for Coastal Organization of Human Resources, a local chapter so SHRM, as the VP of Communications. She also serves as as VP of Community Outreach for Femfessionals-Myrtle Beach.
She is currently studying at Capella University to achieve a M.B.A. She received a B.S. of Interdisciplinary Studies at East Tennessee State University.
Myrtle Beach, SC is home for Brittney where she lives with her husband and mini-beach farm! A true mountaineer at heart, she relocated from the Appalachian mountains to the coast in 2010. When she isn’t conquering the world she is visiting every country she can stamp in her passport.
