Karen Halladay, Founder/Chief Executive Officer

Making lives better and caring about people. That’s what lured Karen Halladay into the Human Resources industry over 30 years ago. She brings profound experience to the firm, including HRIS systems and implementation, payroll management, compliance, recruiting, employee relations, benefits, negotiations, organizational development, budget management, strategic planning, change management, and diversity management. 

Karen exemplifies H2R-Solution’s commitment to helping its clients achieve high performance.  She has led numerous human resources departments, most recently with Compeat Software, where she served as VP of Human Resources. Prior to Compeat, Karen was the AVP of Human Resources with York Risk Services Group, where she was key to multiple mergers and acquisitions, managing all aspects of the HR due diligence process.  


Karen’s certifications include Senior Professional Human Resources (SPHR), Certified Compensation Professional (CCP), Competent Toastmaster (CTM) and Franklin Covey Facilitator for the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.  In her spare time, Karen enjoys traveling and exploring the country with her family.  

Sabrina Clay, President

Creative solutions are what drives Sabrina. And she joined H2R-Solutions to do just that.  A proven leader, Sabrina has extensive expertise in developing strong client relationships, a passion for solution development, and a disciplined focus on operations and execution. She establishes the company’s long-range goals, plans and strategies to support company growth and shape the future of the business.  Prior to H2R-Solutions, Sabrina worked with Synergy Services, a firm specializing in contingent labor payroll and IC compliance. Sabrina held several leadership roles and led the sales, marketing and client support efforts, helping to bring the company from an early-stage start-up to a $150M leader in the contingent workforce industry.


Sabrina brings a wealth of knowledge and has over 30 years of experience in human resources, customer service, strategic planning, partnership development and account management in a variety of industries. She is a Certified Contingent Workforce Professional (CCWP). In her spare time, Sabrina enjoys cooking and prefers the creative side of "winging it" instead of using a recipe.
