Hi Maria Carina! Can you tell us about your background and how you came to Thrive?

I have been working in the Human Resources space for 17 years, specializing in recruitment.  Identifying and securing top talent has always been a passion of mine.  In 2022, I was thrilled to learn about an open position at Thrive and become one of the first employees in the Philippines.  The opportunity to build a team from the ground up was exciting.  There is something uniquely rewarding about selecting and nurturing the best talent to establish a strong foundation for a new venture.

Where did you go to school or get training?

I attended Centro Escolar University in Manila, Philippines.  I have my Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology.

What do you most enjoy about working for Thrive?

I love the collaborative nature of our work environment.  I am particularly grateful for the accommodating and nurturing leadership within the company.  Their dedication to cultivating a supportive culture and prioritizing the well-bring and growth of employees is evident in every interaction with leaders.  This creates a sense of trust and empowerment that allows everyone to THRIVE professionally and personally.

I am immensely proud to be thriving at Thrive.  It is truly empowering to be a successful working mom, knowing that I am supported in both my career and personal life.

Are there any recent exciting projects at Thrive you can tell us about?

We have been rapidly growing and strengthening our team in the Philippines, making sure our global objectives and goals are inline.  I love seeing a collaborative effort of teams across different regions working together towards a common goal.
