Staff Spotlight: Tina Harkness

Join us in congratulating Tina Harkness on her role as the Director of the Northern Regional Office! We look forward to having Tina and her expertise as part of our Fort Collins team. Tina joined MSEC as a staff attorney in the Employment Law Services Department in 1998. She became the Information Resource Manager, in charge of MSEC’s legal publications, in 2005.

Along with her work in publications, she is a frequent speaker and facilitates training of human resource professionals, managers, supervisors, and employees in legal issues in managing employees, harassment prevention, civil rights, managing employee medical issues, diversity, and other subjects. She specializes in legal counseling and represents management in a wide variety of legal matters. She is also the chair of MSEC’s High Country and Western Slope Committee. Tina’s favorite part of working at MSEC is assisting members by answering their questions and brainstorming solutions to their workplace problems.

Tina graduated with honors from the University of Denver in 1993 with a bachelor’s degree in International Studies. She received her law degree in 1996 from the University Of Denver. She received her certification as a Senior Professional in Human Resources in 2000.

When not working, Tina enjoys hiking, biking, yoga, cooking, and reading. While all of us in the Denver office will miss seeing her every day, we wish her the best of luck in her new role!
