HR Compliance Analyst
Kaila Repar joined our team in March 2019 after accomplishing her BA in Business Law from Arizona State University’s W. P. Carey School of Business, where she also minored in Asian Languages (Japanese).
Prior to graduating from Seton Catholic Prep, she was able to volunteer in the school’s partnership with Chandler Sister Cities program and experience Tullamore, Ireland at a unique level with Ireland’s program volunteers.
Kaila is also a self taught technical artist, finding employment through a friend’s referral at Design Works Gaming. She was able to work alongside professionals in this field and her attention to detail became a great asset to them.
We have brought to our team a man of mystery! You ask, “WHY?” His primary employer has agreed to allow him to work with us on condition that he doesn’t have a presence on our website and that they remain off the table during any discussions with our clients. Fair enough for us! We have an absolute ROCK STAR!
We can share with you that he is a graduate of ASU’s W.P. Carey School of Business having earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Finance with a minor in Kinesiology. Rest assured that Micki, who self professes that she is not good with anything involving numbers, is VERY happy to have our “Secret Specialist” on our team!

Organized and thorough, diligent and a keen understanding of HR Compliance. Currently seeking her degree in Computer Engineering. However, if we count the years of being “voluntold” which turned into volunteering at HR Conferences and events over the years, I would qualify to sit for the professional certification AND pass it! “I must have listened to her more than we both had imagined”.
