    Our admin is Jess, and she does a fabulous job of keeping the rest of us on track, and even being available by text on her days off!

    The administrative assistants at our school, Beth and Therese are two fantastic ladies. They keep all our paperwork in order in the middle of all the interruptions that only children can bring. They pull teeth, clean “potty” accidents, check for illnesses, administer medicine, and any thing else that is needed. We would be lost without them!

  3. Norma Huttenga says:

    I lost 2 administrative assistants in less than 6 months One to a new position and one to retirement. I gained 2 that will do whatever it takes to get the job done, and still have access to the one I lost to a new job, who helps whenever we need it. So very grateful!

    I’d like to nominate Sarah Sweet from Booking.com (USA) Inc. Her name serves her well as she is the sweetest person you’ll ever meet. She is efficient, dependable and outgoing. She will do whatever she can for the 500+ employees that she supports! I can’t think of anyone more deserving!!

    My office manager, Kate! Not only would clients be lost without her, but so would I!
