We’re here with another installment in our Employee Spotlight series! Each blog in this monthly series will introduce you to a different member of our team—giving you a peek into what makes us tick as a company and as individuals.
For April, we’re featuring Kristen, the Graphic Design Coordinator at our Detroit branch!
What do you love most about working at Brightwing?
What I love most about working at Brightwing is definitely the people. I have some friends that have horror stories about their coworkers, and I can’t say the same. Everyone here truly acts as a family and it really makes coming to work enjoyable.
How does Brightwing support your career and personal goals?
Brightwing is always encouraging me to further my career goals, whether that be through training course opportunities or just through my everyday work. Looking back to where I was at three years ago when I started makes me realize how much I have learned…and I have Brightwing to thank for that.
Tell me about one of the biggest career challenges you’ve faced and how you overcame it.
There has been a lot of change in my department since I started here. Every time a new change came, it started with an uneasy feeling on my end, but always resulted in me digging deeper and facing challenges to learn something new. I learned to stay positive and be thankful for the growth opportunities.
What is one of your favorite hobbies outside of work?
Tennis! Counting down the days until the cold weather is officially gone so I can get back on the courts.
What 3 words best describe you?
Motivated, organized and easy going.
What motivates you?
Beating the recruiters in cards every day at lunch (more specifically, Justin and Jason).
If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Anywhere that’s 80 degrees with a beach. I’m a frequent Florida visitor.
I went to high school with Eminem’s daughter.
