About Us

Based in Colorado, many of our clients reside along the Front Range, but we’re able to conduct screens for any organization that operates within the United States.

Meet Melissa

Welcome! I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you a little bit about me.

I’ve been in the Human Resources field for the past few decades.  In 2018 my late husband & I were presented with an opportunity to purchase Akurate Screening.  I had professionally utilized a variety of screening companies over the years so when this crossed our path, I welcomed the chance to assist other businesses in what can be an unclear & confusing process.

 In addition to owning the screening company, I provide operational and HR guidance to several local organizations, and I am currently training to become a certified mediator in the state of Colorado.  When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my young adult children, outdoor treks with my malamute & corgi, gardening, yoga & planning for the animal sanctuary I’d like to open by 2025.

 Thanks for giving me the opportunity to partner with you!

Our Mission

The benefits of regularly & consistently screening your new hires is one of the easiest & affordable ways to protect your employees & the culture you’ve worked so hard to establish.

When I started my career in the Human Resources field in 1999, background checks were the exception rather than the rule. In today’s landscape, research shows us that approximately 75% of employers use a screening process of some sort. Our mission is to make the process so easy that all employers, property managers & nonprofits can obtain the information they need to make informed decisions.
