Ken Weatherup first earned his Certified Professional credentials from the Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM-CP) in 2017. A late-bloomer to life in HR, Ken has spent the last 17 years in blended HR-Operations roles and draws on his experience in the process improvement industry (Lean/Six Sigma) and local non-profit economic and community development as he embraces new challenges here at HR NOLA.

Ken is long-time member of the Society for Human Resource Management as well as its local chapter, NOLA SHRM. Ken is an avid hobbyist photographer, Mardi Gras costume designer/fabricator, baker, gardener, and, thanks to the pandemic, Ken has picked up his grand- and great-grandmothers’ passion (and some of their talent) for quilting.

With a little spare time left after all that, Ken enjoys traveling to major bucket-list places around the world with his husband Dave.
