Team Member Spotlight

Hometown? Years in Profession?
“Los Banos, California, 4.”
Before working at LACO, what was the most unusual or interesting job you had?
“I worked for the BSA (Boy Scouts of America) for five years at a summer camp called Camp John Mensinger which is in the Sierra Nevada Mountains near Strawberry, California. I started as the camp store manager, moved to an area director, and then spent three years as the Business Manager.”
What have you gained from working at LACO?
“Confidence. When I joined the firm, I was very shy and nervous. I hated talking on the phone and asked for reassurance about everything. {My supervisor] (lovingly) kicked me out of my nest, so to speak, and greatly helped with my personal and professional growth by helping me push past my personal barriers.”
What is your proudest moment thus far in your career at LACO?
“I am proud that I have worked my way up in the company. When I first joined LACO in 2017 I was the Receptionist/Administrative Assistant. From there I became the Senior Administrative Assistant for Eureka, then the lead for Finalization, and now I am a Project Accountant. My background is in Psychology and if you were to have told my 18-year-old self that someday I would be an accountant I would have never believed it, so it’s pretty cool to see how far I’ve come.
