Trista (she/her) Trista joined Seer in March 2022. She is passionate about developing talented folks while aligning their goals and career aspirations with organizational goals and strategy. She finds the most joy in her work when she helps people and provides value. She loves strategy, challenges, and problem solving (puzzles are her favorite).
Trista entered the workforce at 15, working for a fast-food company where she learned everything she needed to know about customer service. Her first human resources role was an entry-level position filing and processing background checks for a large commercial real estate firm. There, she developed her love and passion for finding talent. Her next role took her to a performance improvement and motivation organization consistently known as a Best Place to Work in St Louis.
Here, Trista learned the ins and outs of creating highly engaging cultures. Trista was recruited to join an engineering design and consulting firm to develop and create the infrastructure for the Human Resources department from ground zero to allow the organization to grow and scale aggressively. During her tenure, the firm doubled in size. Her final role was leading the Human Resources, and Information Technology teams and operations for the firm.
Her number one priority and focus is her family, including her husband John (also in HR), her girls Teagan and Tatum, and her surprise son Thatcher. She loves cleaning, organizing, training for triathlons, and giving back to the community. She loves working for Seer because she can bring her whole authentic self to her work and be inspired, encouraged, and supported to give back to the community.
