Krysten will be joined by various People2Work members on her team, including:

Jessica Prosper is a self-proclaimed “people person” who received her Bachelor of Social Work degree in 2012. She soon realized that she was not interested in pursuing a career in that industry but knew that she wanted to assist people in some capacity. After working as a hiring and training manager within a store for a big box retailer, she discovered that she wanted to explore the human resources industry. In the fall of 2016, Jessica relocated from Barrie to Toronto and attended George Brown College where she graduated with a post-graduate certificate in Human Resources Management. During this program she found a new love for recruitment, which resulted in her seeking and completing a 4 month internship with People 2 Work. In February of 2018 Jessica became the newest edition to the People 2 Work team and has developed a passion for the heavy civil construction industry, making connections with candidates and clients in Ontario and British Columbia with hopes of further expansion into other regions.

Marife Martins is a Human Resources professional with nearly 5 years of experience in recruitment. Marife received a Bachelor Degree in Psychology from Venezuela, where she initiated her professional career after graduating. Marife was responsible for the psychological assessment of candidates and recruitment practices. Two years later, she became the head of a recruitment department. In 2013, Marife decided to move to Canada. After studying English, she was ready to her next step in her professional career. She received a Post-graduate Certificate in Human Resources Management from George Brown College, and since then, Marife joined the People 2 Work team, where totally fell in love with the construction industry.
