Originally from the Central Illinois area, Kylee moved to Wisconsin to attend the University of Wisconsin-Madison college. After receiving her bachelor’s degree in history, Kylee served as an AmeriCorps member for the Schools of Hope Project in Madison, assisting local elementary teachers by recruiting and placing volunteer literacy tutors with students. After her service term, she joined a large property management company in Madison, assisting with leasing and resident relations. In 2018, Kylee was promoted to Property Manager of the downtown portfolio, where she performed interviews, orientations, and training. In July 2019, Kylee and her husband were drawn to the La Crosse area for its scenery and outdoor activities! Going for long walks in the summer around her neighborhood in South La Crosse with her husband and dog, Pretzel, is now a favorite pastime!
Kylee joined the Referral Staffing Solutions team in February of 2020, and as a Talent Recruiter, she has contributed to RSS by following through on what is best for both the client, employee, and our team. She has always been willing to take the time to train others or give a helping hand. Because of her bright mind, commitment to doing the right thing, and dedication to completing any challenge presented to her, Kylee has since been promoted to Human Resources and Operations Supervisor. In this role, she is helping the company re-design policies and procedures to ensure workflow is optimized for efficiency while ensuring internal staff is supported and trained. Kylee’s kind heart and empathy for all show through her daily work!

Melissa Hickey is RSS's first-ever Branch Manager in La Crosse! Melissa grew up in the La Crosse area and graduated from Holmen High School in 2009. She graduated from UW-La Crosse with a Bachelor of Arts in English Rhetoric and Writing. She thought she wanted to work in journalism or public relations, but her love of politics took her down a different path. Melissa accepted a position with a non-profit organization called Americans for Prosperity in March of 2015, where she started the local field office and spent a ton of time hosting events, recruiting volunteers, and leading grassroots activities! Eventually, she was promoted to the Director of Grassroots Operations, where she learned more about leading a team and supervising, which helped get her to where she is today!
Melissa oversees daily operations at Referral Staffing Solutions in La Crosse, leads her team, and even steps in and recruits to meet clients' needs.
On a personal note, Melissa lives on the south side of La Crosse with her husband, Neil. They were recently married and are loving it! 😊 They have one dog, Moose, and a cat, Tris, which keeps them very busy and entertained!

Lexi Johnson is our newest Talent Recruiter at our La Crosse branch! Lexi grew up in the heart of Onalaska and is an Onalaska High School alumnus of the class of 2017! She is currently attending Western Technical College to pursue a degree in Human Resource Management with Graphic Design coursework. Lexi’s career path started with her working in a call center on military readiness contracts. In that position, she worked directly with military members and eventually helped on projects in the office. She enjoyed the work with people but wanted a career where she could be more involved and feel like she was making a difference. That’s when she started a job in an insurance office in Onalaska. She became certified with the state of WI and held a title as an Agent Assistant. She loved that job, and it helped her gain more experience, which eventually led her to her career with us!
Lexi started with us as a Talent Recruiter in May of 2022 and loves it! In her role at RSS, she enjoys building relationships with our clients, candidates, and others in the community. Lexi conducts many interviews, orientations, and recruiting for our clients in La Crosse County!

On a personal level, Lexi currently lives with her boyfriend Aaron and their adorable Corgi, Griffey, in Holmen. Lexi is also a Dance Teacher at Turning Pointe Dance Studio in Holmen! So, in her free time, you can find her dancing in addition to spending time with her family and friends.
