Chris Yerian

SENIOR TALENT SOURCING SPECIALIST

As Paragon’s Senior Talent Sourcing Specialist, Chris provides strong, proactive sourcing to build pipelines of highly qualified candidates for our client needs.  Chris focuses on long-term outcomes and brings a highly analytical perspective along with an emphasis on process and the candidate experience.  

Prior to joining Paragon, Chris sourced and recruited part-time instructional staff for Trilogy Education (acquired by 2U, Inc.) and for Kaplan Test Prep, where she drafted all candidate-facing materials and was instrumental in redesigning the application process after a team restructure.  

After a break from work to care for her family and before transitioning to recruiting, Chris briefly taught an LSAT prep course for Kaplan. 

Chris earned her J.D. from Vanderbilt University Law School, her M.Div. from Vanderbilt Divinity School, and her B.A. in Biology and Religion from Case Western Reserve University.  Immediately after law school, she practiced at the Tennessee Justice Center as a Skadden Fellow, representing children enrolled in Tennessee’s Medicaid program.

Outside of work, Chris enjoys reading, baking, cooking, solving crossword puzzles, hot yoga, trail running and spending time with her spouse, 3 children and Bernedoodle.
