About me

My Story

Cindy Carpenter holds the two top Human Resource certifications – the SPHR (Senior Professional in Human Resources) and SHRM – SCP (Society of Human Resource Management – Senior Certified Professional).  With a degree in Business Education from the University of Montana, she has over 25 years of training experience primarily focused on human resource and people topics. To compliment her training background, she has been a practicing Human Resource professional since 1996 in the banking, insurance and manufacturing industries. Cindy’s background includes work experiences beyond Human Resources, within the banking industry and as a business owner. Cindy is also an adjunct faculty member with the Continuing Education Center at FVCC.


Cindy believes in giving back to the community and supports a number of community events including the annual Samaritan House fundraiser and has served as a past Board Member of United Way. You will find that Cindy provides a valuable combination of training, education, business ownership and real life work experience.

My Philosophy

No matter what your business model is, at some time or another in the life of your business, you will likely need assistance with growing your people, redirecting their priorities, or simply keeping them on track.  There are a number of ways and means to do this.  In some companies, it is as simple as writing a set of procedures or clarifying job responsibilities.  Other times, it involves coaching or training existing staff.  On occasion, this may mean having some difficult conversations.  It might be hiring new talent. 

It may also mean looking at your business processes and improving efficiencies.  Outsourcing may be an alternative.


If you have any of these needs, or similar ones, it’s time to reach out to experts for assistance.  Just as you have expertise in your particular field or profession, you should seek out expertise to assist in areas where you don’t have the knowledge or experience or even the time. 


Whether a short term need or an ongoing need exists, Carpenter Business Resources, LLC can fill the gap. I respond to every request with a passion for excellence and total customer satisfaction.
