Both as a firm partner and as a director, Ms. Kiernan gained solid experience in management and human resources compliance. Her articles on employment law have been published in many books and magazines.
She has designed and delivered respectful workplace, harassment, and sensitivity training and coaching since 1997.

Senior HR Manager - Staffing, Training, & Development
I had been working with LSA for many years across a few different companies.
Currently, I’m with a company who hadn’t done much new manager training. LSA designed and delivered exactly what we needed at this stage in our life cycle.
Our managers are excited, talking in the halls about the great experience, and applying what they learned.
LSA makes things easy and practical for us. Thank you!
LSA’s customized Effective Presentation Skills program has helped us elevate our presentation skills to the next level. I personally now have a much greater self-awareness of my presentation skills and can leverage off of my strengths while working to improve upon other areas.
