Eleven years ago, Yesenia founded her Human Resources consulting firm, HRY Solutions. She has consulted with a broad range of industries and businesses in both profit and non-profit companies — including union environments. Her greatest strengths are her knowledge, relationships with her client companies, and being fluent in Spanish. She does whatever she can to help them be successful. Through her years of consulting, Yesenia always wanted to do more for her clients, therefore, she partnered with her daughter, Jeanette Flores, and founded her second company, HRY Personnel Services. They now help companies stay in compliance with labor laws and equip them with the workforce they need to excel. Yesenia Flores strives for optimum results in all that she does. For her, Human Resources is not just a job, but something she is passionate about. Yesenia cares about her companies as if they are her own, and expects nothing less from her associates. Adding authenticity, reliability, and trustworthiness, in all that they do. Yesenia holds a Bachelor’s of Science in Business Administration with an emphasis in Management & Human Resources from California Polytechnic University, Pomona. She also attended part of a Master’s Degree program in Leadership and Management at the University of La Verne. Yesenia received the ‘Trail Blazer’ Award, “A successful business owner with a growing business, who contributes to her community and leads by example” from the National Latina Business Women’s Association. For the past eight years, Yesenia has devoted (or dedicated) her efforts to the forthcoming generation of Human Resources professionals.

By doing so, she has transformed her passion and love for the field, into something others can learn and thrive from. She is also a speaker at Universities for Human Resources students and participates in Career Days at several schools to inform students about her life, obstacles she over-came and career progress.

Yesenia’s motto is: "A Helping Hand With Many Solutions”.

Yesenia Flores was born in Guatemala and immigrated to the United States at nine years old. School was challenging at first because she did not speak English, but with an eagerness to learn, she quickly overcame that. Yesenia learned the language and began to excel in school. From a tender age, Yesenia and her younger brother helped their single mother clean houses, apartments, and offices for a living. A defining moment in her life, was when she was cleaning a filthy bathtub of a vacated apartment and decided, “I will never do this when I grow up.” Yesenia was motivated to go to school and get a career. She was determined to create a career she loved and could be proud of, so that she, nor her family would ever have to clean for a living. As a teenager, Yesenia envisioned herself becoming a successful businesswoman and she steadily paved her way towards that

goal. After attending Cal Poly Pomona and becoming a mother and wife, Yesenia obtained her Bachelor’s degree in Business and Human Resources. Upon graduating, Yesenia began her career in Human Resources. Since then, Yesenia has been a leader and pioneer in the Human Resources and Business fields. She loves her career because every day is an opportunity to help others. In 2005, Yesenia took a leap of faith and joined a Human Resources consulting firm as a consultant. As a consultant of the company, Yesenia did not always know when she would be paid, and upon realizing she was doing all of the work for the clients, she decided to take an even bigger leap of faith and start her own consulting firm. In 2008, Yesenia launched HRY Solutions, a professional Human Resources Consulting Firm. She struggled at first, not getting many clients and thought she was going to have to go back to work for a company, but through persistence, excellent work ethic and results, she began to build her list HR consulting clientele. Eleven years later, Yesenia partnered with her daughter, Jeanette Flores, and expanded HRY Solutions into HRY Personnel Services. HRY Personnel Services provides staffing and recruiting solutions to companies in need. Their company motto is, “A helping hand with many solutions,” because that is how Yesenia sees herself and her company. Yesenia has created the career she always aspired for and in doing so created two very successful companies. She firmly believes that anything is possible! She has learned that no matter how hard or difficult a situation is, or what others think of you, you must overcome it. Along the way, you should always help others in need without expecting anything in return.
