Kerry Billings, Deputy HR Director

Kerry moved from her hometown of Miami, FL to join the HR team at the start of Jan 2023.   Kerry’s HR experience comes from the diverse world of higher education and the vivid industry of hospitality.  The time spent in both is what grew her passion for People Operations.  New to the valley, Kerry looks forward to enjoying all her new home has to offer-from snowy hikes in Winter to fly fishing in the Summer.  If you see Kerry around, feel free to tell her about your favorite places and experiences here-she is excited to discover all this beautiful valley has to offer.
