Libby’s calm demeanor, natural curiosity about what makes people tick, and true desire to help others makes her an ideal human resources director. Her background in psychology, business consulting, organizational development and HR leadership give her the perfect blend of experience to continue building on the strong work culture at Connective DX.

Joining Connective DX in 2015 brought this native Oregonian back to her roots after living in the Bay Area, where she earned her Master’s degree and PhD in Organizational Psychology and gained 15 years of experience at companies including Hewlett-Packard, The Strayer Consulting Group, TechTV, CNET Networks and CBS Interactive.

Her approach to her job is simple and powerful. “We spend so much time at work each day that it leaves an imprint on us,” she says. “I focus on making that imprint a positive one.”

At work she is happiest serving as a sounding board, using her extensive research and experience to help individuals and teams work together most effectively. At home she enjoys time with her husband and their two young daughters, going on adventures with them to explore Portland. Getting lost in the occasional true crime novel helps keep her psychological evaluation skills sharp.

Libby’s words to live and work by:

  • Always keep an open mind—encourage new people and new ideas.
  • There’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all solution.
