AL: How long have you been with Action Lift?
I started in September of 2022.
AL: Briefly, what does your job entail?
My job entails a lot of communication with our customers. I keep an eye on all accounts to ensure daily that we are being paid correctly and on time. I process and clear all payments that come into Action Lift. I create and set up new accounts as requested and process credit applications to consider whether they’re eligible to be placed on account.
AL: What’s your secret talent no one knows about?
Not much of a secret, but I am an avid runner, typically running about 15 miles weekly. I have completed two half marathons since 2021 and plan to run another this coming October. This year, my husband and I have completed four races, including a ½ marathon, a 5K up the ski slopes at Montage Mountain, and a 4-mile run – to which we placed Overall Female and Overall Male. We have at least three more races this year, but no promises that more won’t be added to our schedule.
AL: Regarding successes, which accomplishments are you most proud of?
I am most proud of completing my bachelor’s in accounting. College took me a little longer than the typical four years. So, figuring out what I wanted to do, finishing my degree by going to school full time, interning 20 hours a week, and serving 35+ hours a week was most certainly my most significant accomplishment.
AL: How have you grown professionally while on our team?
Since starting at Action Lift, everything I have learned has been new knowledge for me. Before starting here, I worked at a Public Accounting firm where I interned in the tax department for six months and then worked full-time in their Audit department for a year and a half. Private accounting has been much different and less demanding, but it is still challenging daily.
AL: Tell me something about you that most people don’t know.
When I’m not at Action Lift, I work part-time at a restaurant in downtown Pittston, Rikasa, about three nights a week as a server. I also enjoy all things outside: Running, kayaking, hiking, walking, etc.
Thank you for sharing with us, Jordan!
