Recruiter, Essentia Health
Member Engagement Chair, YPN
Kelly Halvorson moved to the FMWF area from Willmar, Minnesota, when she came to pursue a degree in marketing and communication from Concordia College. Kelly has had a diverse career background since her graduation and most recently started as a recruiter with Essentia Health. Her current role has her partner with managers to develop recruitment strategies that will support their staffing needs. She also works with local organizations and schools for special events, career fairs and other initiatives to grow Essentia’s network of candidates.
Outside of work, Kelly is active with the Horace Elementary PTO and getting involved in the community with her family through their church and United Way. She believes involvement in these organizations teach her daughters the importance of giving back. Kelly is very family focused, and anything she can do while spending time with her family is her “happy place.”
Kelly has been involved in YPN for a few years and currently serves as the member engagement chair. She oversees the welcoming of new members to the organization and the annual contacts to our members. Being involved in YPN is important to her as she believes it is motivating to be surrounded by people who are passionate about their careers and want to make a difference in this community.
“This community offers the best of both worlds for living and working because it is a thriving area for young professionals and also maintains a family-friendly atmosphere,” she said.
