Emma Kershner, HR and Recruiting Coordinator, joined ProSource360 Consulting Services, Inc. on February 24th, 2021, while devoting most of her time to her academic schedule and Division 1 soccer career at the Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU). While Emma joined the ProSource360 team as part of the Corporate Workforce Development Program part-time, the ProSource360 management team quickly noticed her phenomenal talent. For her, no task seemed impossible, and she promptly threw herself into the matrixed structure to ensure the team’s success. Emma excelled in providing support to the HR team and helped reduce the days to complete onboarding activities. Her “can do” attitude and desire to achieve have supported the HR department in multiple undertakings such as compliance with various executive orders and the HUBZone, data calls, and the overall refinement of the employee referral tracking process.
Emma graduated with her bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science and Psychology in May of 2021 with Magna Cum Laude and is currently pursuing her master’s degree in Sports Leadership with an anticipated graduation date of December 2022. Emma is passionate about female empowerment through sports and is now seeking to become a Division 1 soccer coach. She is passionate about giving back and attributes her success to her innate drive, and the structure put in place by her parents. Her accomplishments in soccer include the 2021 Atlantic 10 Midfielder of the Year, two-time All-Conference 1st Team Selection, and Atlantic 10 All-Academic Team. From 2018 to 2021, she scored 17 goals, had 14 assists – 10th in VCU history, and had seven game-winning goals – 4th in VCU History.
Although her college playing career has ended, Emma was recently invited into the National Women’s Soccer League – 2021 Champion – Washington Spirit preseason training camp, where she will fulfill her life-long dream of being a pro soccer player. We are always proud to develop and refine the workforce’s talent and prepare our team for future success. Give a shout-out to Emma and the Workforce Development Program!
