Kari has worked at Penhall for three years. She is the Administrative Services Manager for Penhall Technologies.
What does a typical day look like for you?
My day starts by taking my son to day care in the morning. I then come into work and complete payroll tasks. I try to work on urgent requests first. Also, I manage new hires and their onboarding, input and correct payroll and tickets, help out with vehicle organization and registrations, help with billing questions, and more. My tasks change daily so my days are never the same. This is what I love about working here. Once I complete my day, I pick up my son from day care and make dinner and then we pick a movie and watch that as a family. We also play games at night or go for walks around the block together.
How long have you worked at Penhall and why did you choose to work here?
I have been working at Penhall for 3 years. I wanted to work here because a friend used to be an employee, and told me about the great working environment and work ethic that Penhall Company has.
What is your greatest accomplishment at Penhall?
I am proud that my job and location has changed a lot, and I have adapted very easily to the change over the years. I strive to complete all tasks and learn as much as I can. I help with creating new ways to make Penhall Technologies run smoothly and more organized on the administrative side.
What inspires or drives you every day?
I’ve always had the idea that if you wake up in the morning and do not want to do what you have to do, then you shouldn’t do it. I found that at Penhall, I have not had that feeling. I love my job because it is ever-changing. My drive comes from wanting to always have a smile on my face and to love my life. I want my family and me to have new and unique memories, and this job allows me to have a work-life balance you cannot get at all jobs nowadays.
