Elisa Garn

Prior to launching a tech company centered around mentorship, Elisa's experience includes more than 15 years in HR, recruiting and business development primarily with small to mid-sized businesses. A true Xennial (the micro-generation between Gen X and Millennials), she is often an early adopter with a natural curiosity for all things – Especially people!

Her passion for the HR profession is obvious: She is a member of the Forbes Human Resource Council, has served as the President for Salt Lake SHRM, co-founded DisruptHR SLC, currently serves as the Past Executive Director for Utah SHRM and acts as an advisor and member of several business-focused groups. Elisa holds the SHRM-SCP, SPHR, PRC and SHRM Talent Management Specialty Credential certifications.

Her company, LevelNext, is a digital platform designed to connect recruiters and HR professionals with candidates who want to advance their careers through one on one mentorship and coaching.

When she's not exploring one of Utah's beautiful trails or organizing an impromptu flash mob, she's busy sewing 80's throwback costumes for her 10-year-old son and pursuing her journey to find the world's best cinnamon roll.
