Introducing Kristen Fanizza, HR Officer

We’re thrilled to welcome Kristen Fanizza to the Magnetic People team in the role of HR Officer. 

Kristen brings a new dimension of skills to the team and has a background in psychology, having worked as a Clinical Psychologist for several years.   

We sat down with Kristen to find out a little more about her.  

What interests you about the Human Resources industry?

“I am looking forward to relating my background in psychology to the HR industry. I’m excited to learn new skills, after taking some time off to look after my children.” 

What’s the most interesting thing about you that we wouldn’t learn from your CV?

I met my husband through a friend of a friend while I was travelling in the USA. I moved to Scottsdale, Arizona, in 2013 and spent the first year touring with the band my husband was in at the time. It was quite an adventure, and I was able to explore a lot of the USA! I have two children, Anya and Theo, who keep me very busy. My husband and I made the decision to relocate our family to Perth, Western Australia, earlier this year, arriving in March 2019.” 

What are your hobbies outside of work?

“I am enjoying introducing my husband and children to Perth and looking forward to travelling Australia as a family. I love living close to the ocean again after living in the Arizona desert for six years. In my spare time, I enjoy going for walks along Perth’s coastline and trying new cafés and restaurants with family and friends.” 

Please join us in welcoming Kristen to the team.
