What do you do at Flyhomes? I’m the Payroll Analyst for Flyhomes, which means it’s my job to make sure everyone gets paid!
What did you do before joining Flyhomes? I’ve been in payroll or operations for about 7 years now. Most recently I was a Payroll Specialist at T-Mobile.
What’s something unexpected that you’ve learned on the job? Always be aware of your surroundings. I started with Flyhomes shortly before COVID-19 caused us to work from home. I forgot I had swords hung on the walls of my home office.
What’s your #1 tip for homebuyers? Make sure there is a silverware drawer! When my husband and I were house shopping, we thought we liked a house until our agent told us to play “where does everything go?” We immediately realized that kitchen didn’t have a silverware drawer, and that was a deal breaker.
How do you like to spend time when you’re not working? I love to bake. At least once a month I try and cook a meal completely from scratch, all the way to the bread or noodles.
What’s something about you that surprises people? My experience operating uncommon vehicles. I’ve sailed boats, flown planes, steered submarines, piloted monorails, and launched rockets. Once upon a time I worked at Disneyland.
Pets, plants, or both? What makes you happy at home? I have 2 adorable 80lbs dogs; Korze and Beyla, who think they are lap dogs. Who am I to disagree with puppy snuggles. I’m working on my green thumb and trying not to kill my fruit trees and strawberries.
What neighborhood do you live in? I live south of the city in Kent.
Where else have you lived? I grew up in Southern California, and went to college in Flagstaff, AZ. Go Lumberjacks!
What’s your favorite place in Kent? Spill a best-kept neighborhood secret spot (where do the locals go?) Wild Wheat Bakery. I love trying local bakeries for inspiration of what to try and bake next.
What do you love most about your home? Besides my kitchen, I love my walk in closet. When we bought the house, we had a custom Elfa closet installed to keep everything organized, 3 years later and my closet has never been messy.
