Carissa Welsh joins the Blue Heron Consulting team as a Communication Specialist for the Hiring Services department. Carissa is originally from Las Vegas, NV and received a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Utah State University. She brings over 8 years of administrative experience in both veterinary and human medicine to our team.

Carissa loves creating connections with others to ensure that clients feel heard and cared for throughout the hiring process. She enjoys the challenge of thinking strategically to help clients achieve their goals for their practice while building meaningful relationships. Her husband is a veterinarian and together they have enjoyed sharing a passion and love for animals and the care that they receive.

Carissa and her husband, Peter, welcomed their first baby boy, Revan, this past year and love doing anything that involves getting outdoors as a family. You can find them mountain biking, trail running, or cross-country skiing during the year and they look forward to having Revan join in on these adventures soon. In her free time, Carissa also teaches indoor spin group fitness classes as a fun hobby in the early mornings.
