Christy Hotard Rosenfeld left Texas after high school to experience life in Colorado. She graduated with a BA in Business Administration from Western State College of Colorado (now called Western State University of Colorado). Then she moved to Washington, DC where she worked in the non-profit field before joining the Peace Corps and serving two years in the Republic of South Africa as a capacity building volunteer for a local non-profit. It was during this time she found her passion for organizational development, specifically training and coaching staff members and creating processes and efficiencies to create a sustainable business model.
Rosenfeld stayed overseas in South Africa and Zimbabwe for another two years, working as a training consultant and starting her own small sandwich making business, serving a niche market in the expat community and becoming profitable within three months. After a few years, Rosenfeld came back to the states to pursue her masters at the University of Denver. She graduated with an International MBA in Strategic Leadership in 2013 and received the honor of International MBA Advisory Board Student of the Year recognizing her academic success and international experiences. After graduation, she moved back to San Antonio and started a career in health care operations working for a Fortune 500 company as a dialysis clinic manager.
Rosenfeld transitioned into preventative health care and spent the 2 years managing health and wellness programs and promotion for HEB employees. She designed, launched and administered four major wellness program initiatives, including an inaugural leadership wellness program, helping over 30 leaders within the company improve their health and create sustainable healthy lifestyle practices. Rosenfeld decided to leave HEB to pursue her passion in training/facilitation and organization development. Currently, she is contracting as a Leadership Facilitator and Organization Development Specialist, designing and implementing development opportunities for teams, as well as coaching non-profit leaders and professionals in career transitions. She is an active member of her community, volunteering for SOS Summer of Service San Antonio organization, as well as serving on the board for various non profits including PFLAG San Antonio, San Antonio Young Professionals (combined with LOOP – Leadership Organization of Young Professionals), and University Presbyterian Children’s Center.
Rosenfeld is married to her husband of eight and a half years, Jason, and together they have two boys, plus two energetic dogs Leelu and Cookie.
