team-background

Michele Houston

Systems Administrator

What I enjoy most about the work I do is finding new technological solutions, learning how to use them, and then implementing them so the Resourceful HR team can get the job done efficiently and effectively. I'm passionate about making IT work for us, and not against us.

Education and Certifications

In addition to my formal education, I like to say I’ve earned a Masters from Google. I’m not afraid of computers, of doing research, and putting what I learn to use.

  • BA, University of Washington
  • Coursework completed: AIRS recruiting methodologies

Community Involvement/Board Participation

I’m inspired to give back by the knowledge that we must treat others in a way we wish to be treated.

  • Sponsor, AHOPE for Children
  • Sponsor, India Gospel League

Personal Interests

I love to ride my bike, sing, be outdoors, and learn.

Client Work

My career has evolved to a place where I’m now able to proactively find the tools that will help our virtual team stay connected with each other and with our clients. Part of that shift involved selecting and hiring an outsourced IT consultant firm to manage our day-to-day help desk function.

I’m able to provide this IT firm with oversight and direction, but they provide the dedicated operations support if we have a network or systems issue. The support we’re getting helps Resourceful HR meet our customer satisfaction goals, and at the same time, these IT consultants have been able to expand their approach to make sure that they provide individual IT support for a remote workforce.

Whether it’s finding the right system or IT provider, I enjoy the partnerships I’m able to create with solution providers, my colleagues and our clients. I feel fortunate to have a job that allows me to learn, explore, and select system solutions that help drive our business forward.
