Founder and President.

Early on in her corporate HR career, Kimberly Prescott earned a reputation as a confident, fearless advisor.

Kimberly noticed that while some of her HR colleagues hesitated to make the bold or tough recommendations that a situation required, she was unintimidated by sticky situations, driven to serve companies and leaders with the best advice and guidance for what to do next. Her willingness to address, head on, the issues at hand — along with her love of all things HR (employment law compliance, employee relations and business strategy) — led her to start her own HR consulting firm. Prescott HR was launched in 2014 to relentlessly handle all of the HR challenges, not just the easy ones.

Kimberly is practiced at assisting clients with developing a strong internal management and human resources structure during periods of organizational change and/or rapid growth. She’s also adept at creating and defining HR departments and practices from the ground up.

Kimberly’s commitment to helping her clients is unwavering and her confidence, palpable. With expertise, authenticity, and ease, she identifies, simplifies, and resolves problems.

Kimberly brings nearly two decades of experience from previous HR leadership and director positions, including at Whole Foods, Social Solutions, Maxim Healthcare Services, TEKsystems, Paychex, and Giant Food.

Community and giving back is important to Kimberly. Among others, she is Past President of the Howard County Human Resources Society (HoCo HRS) and she is a pro bono consultant with the Taproot Foundation. Kimberly holds the Senior Human Resources Professional (SPHR) and SHRM Senior Certified Professional (SHRM-SCP) certifications. She attended the University of Maryland University College, studying Human Resources Management.

When Kimberly is not working with clients, she enjoys traveling for good food, shopping, and spending time with her husband and daughter.
