Terri Fasulo, KMA Human Resources Consultant

“Employees who are challenged, feel valued and fairly compensated are at their most productive. My passion is supporting organizational success through how they manage their employees. I believe everyone has potential. If an employer focuses adequate time and resources in support of employees development, they tend to be more engaged and committed to the company’s success. In situations where an employee is not engaged and isn’t performing satisfactorily, I strive to ensure that both the employee and the employers perspectives are appropriately represented, and the issues are addressed timely, fairly, and whatever the outcome the parties agree the process was respectful.” (Terri Fasulo)

Terri Fasulo has more than 25 years of experience as a Human Resources professional, creating collaborative relationships with people at all levels of organizations. Areas of focus include compensation and performance management; coaching and supporting new and emergent supervisors; and developing, supporting, and advocating for employees to become their best, productive selves in support of personal and company goals.

Angela Hansen has joined the KMA team as a Human Resources Consultant. Angela has more than 25 years of experience as a Human Resources professional, with a focus on compliance and policy and process development relating to all areas of human resources, including benefits, compensation, performance management, employee relations, recruiting, and organizational development.

Gina Hayes, KMA Human Resources Consultant

“I find it so rewarding to help people get to the next level of their careers. And on the client side, I love seeing businesses hire the right talent that will help them grow and be the best fit for their organizations. So it’s really both sides of the recruiting process that I enjoy.” (Gina Hayes)

Gina Hayes is an HR professional with more than 12 years of experience as a recruiter. A native of central Maine, she attended Old Dominion University in Virginia, where she earned her BA in Psychology. Upon graduating, she made her way back to New England where she began her recruiting career in Boston with Daniel Roberts Staffing, managing their sales and recruiting efforts.

Gina found HR to be a natural fit for her aptitude for making connections with people.

Eventually, Gina met her future husband, who is also from Maine, and while they loved Boston and the big city lifestyle, they knew it wasn’t their future, and decided to move back to their roots and family ties in Maine.

For the past eight years, Gina has worked remotely as a National Recruiter for the Tampa-based firm Naviga, placing sales and management executives nationwide. But she realized that she was missing a connection to what was happening in her own community, and that’s one of the things she looks forward to cultivating at KMA.

“I don’t think you can overstate the importance of setting up a strong HR framework in a small or growing business. Starting up a business can be overwhelming, and it’s easy to think of HR as something you can always deal with in the future. But right from the start it sets the tone for the business and creates the culture.” (Chelsea Livingston)

A graduate of Susquehanna University in Pennsylvania with a degree in International Studies, Chelsea began her career as an HR generalist at CIEE, a non-profit organization administering international exchange programs.

In 2011, Chelsea and her husband opened Baxter Brewing in Lewiston, with Chelsea handling the financials, HR, and various other tasks to get the business up and running. Eventually, they added a restaurant, so Chelsea focused her efforts on recruiting and managing the growing staff.

These days, with operations at the brewery and restaurant well in hand, Chelsea is excited to work with KMA to continue to grow in her HR career, especially in the area of recruiting, and to experience more variety in the kinds of industries and projects she can impact.

Janyce Volodkevich, KMA Human Resources Consultant

“What I like best about HR is bringing all the resources together to create the best possible work environment in an organization.” (Janyce Volodkevich)

A native of Maine,  Janyce Volodkevich spent most of her adult life on the West Coast, between Long Beach, California and Seattle, Washington.

She earned her bachelor’s degree in Hotel Administration from the University of Las Vegas, and embarked on a long career in the hotel industry, working for Hyatt and Kimpton hotels. Over time, she began to take on more of an HR role, learning from the ground up, and eventually became regional director of HR with Kimpton Hotels, overseeing 10 hotels in 4 states, and some 2,000 employees.

Janyce and her husband, Bob, raised two daughters in Seattle, meanwhile watching their small city explode into a large city, with infrastructure, traffic and housing challenges. A few years ago, they purchased some land in Belgrade with the dream of returning to Maine. And once their daughters were settled—Maria an Air Force Intelligence Officer in Virginia and Katie a junior at University of Washington—the time seemed right to make the move.

Janyce loves being out in nature. She and her husband are avid travelers and have spent time in Spain, Portugal, and Italy. “We also just love spending time with our daughters, and we visit and vacation with them whenever we can.”

Susan Wasserott, KMA Human Resources Consultant

“Any time you get more than two people together, there are eventually going to be conflicts or problems to address. I enjoy problem solving, and working with employees and employers.” (Susan Wasserott)

Susan Wasserott has been in the human resources world for more than 30 years, before it was even known as HR. And while many things have changed over time, the one thing that has remained constant is that HR is all about making things better for people, both employees and employers, and that passion is what has motivated and inspired Susan’s entire career.

Susan earned her Master’s degree in HR Administration while serving in various HR roles at companies large and small, with a particular focus on training and development. She has held a diverse range of positions, and even had her own television show called “In My Backyard,” where she interviewed state leaders to discuss how legislation in Augusta affects Maine citizens on the ground. She served as the Legislative Aide for the Speaker of the House, a role that ultimately led to her appointment as the Legislative Affairs Director for the Maine Department of Labor, where she worked on HR-related legislation.

Susan lives in Woolwich with her husband, their cat, and two dogs, and can often be found at the beach or out on the rivers in the midcoast area. She loves to travel, and has a deep appreciation for music, especially musical theatre, and volunteers as a Maine State Music Theatre Angel.

Your practice continues to impress me with the quality of the consultants you employ, the thought leadership you demonstrate through events, and with the clientele that all appear to be satisfied, if not ‘raving’ fans. I enjoy interacting with you and your outfit because I can literally see what ‘added value’ looks like.
