About Activate HR

Bringing Corporate Experience to Your Independent Business

Stephanie Van Lue has over 20 years of Human Resources experience, starting her career as an HR Generalist for a corporate aviation company and working her way to Head of HR for a large, multi-state restaurant company.

Stephanie has also spent over a decade working in the fractional/outsourced HR space, effectively juggling multiple clients and their priorities.   She is known for building strong relationships with her clients.  She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Resources Management from Louisiana Tech University.  

She prides herself on understanding the individual business needs of each company that she works with, and looking for creative solutions that meets a company’s needs.  You will not find her to be the typical HR person who either tells you “no” to lots of things, or creates policy for the sake of having policy.  You can expect, deliberate, rational reasons for why things are created, and Stephanie will seek solutions to your questions that enable you to get where you’re wanting to go without running afoul of the EEOC.

Stephanie has worked across 40 different states, has processed more unemployment claims than she cares to count, and has become immune to being shocked by employee relations situations and issues.

Stephanie is proud to be married to her husband for over 20 years, and is a Mom to 3 hilarious kids.  She and her husband are hobbyist beekeepers who also have chickens and a dog.  In the fall, she can generally be found on a football field, cheering on the band, as she has 2 sons who march in the bands at their respective Universities.  In the spring, she can occasionally be found with glitter in her hair from being her daughter’s sherpa at her dance competitions.  A native of south Louisiana, but living in Texas for over 20 years, she loves crawfish and tacos in equal measure.
