With significant growth comes significant new employment opportunities, and we are pleased to announce the hiring of three new Billing Coordinators! On the heels of JKR’s best year ever in 2014 – and our best first quarter ever in 2015 – we’ll be announcing the hiring of quite a few new employees in the coming weeks. So without further delay, let’s introduce you to our three new billing coordinators.
Our Three New Billing Coordinators
Sarah Pendleton: Prior to joining us at JKR, Sarah was an Accounting Clerk, Webmaster and Marketing Assistant for a retail store, where she worked for nearly three years. She’s enjoying her new environment at JKR, which is quite a change. “Coming from a small retail background, JKR is a very exciting workplace,” she says. “There’s always something new going on, and we’re constantly challenged to keep learning and growing with the company. The billing and accounting departments are the backbone of the company that makes the front end run seamlessly.”
Sarah graduated from UCF in 2009 with a Bachelor of Arts in Technical Communications. She’s also a newlywed, having been married to her husband, Cory, last December. Together, the couple has “a clowder of cats.” (If you don’t know what that means, look it up!)
Christina Bowers: Christina’s unique background assists her in numerous ways as she interacts with all the “creative people” here at JKR. After spending her freshman year at USF in Tampa, she graduated from UCF with a major in Communications, Social & Behavioral Science, and a Minor in Nonprofit Management. See … what did we tell you; perfect, right! Prior to working at JKR, she gained experience working as the Director and Social Media Coordinator of a med spa.
“The billing department is very detail-oriented, and it requires great responsibility,” she says of her work. “It really reflects our reliability and reputation as a company.” When she’s not at work, Christina is training to be a yoga teacher. What would people be surprised to learn about her? “Three things,” she says. “I paint murals, I sing in a band, and I’m a cancer survivor!”
Trevor Brown: Trevor is a recent graduate of the University of Florida, and this is his first full-time job. However, he gained extensive experience at his college internships – with one being particularly helpful. “I interned at a company called Blezoo Promotional Products,” Trevor said. “I helped with new business development, creative strategies and campaign executions. I walked away from that internship knowing much more about entrepreneurship, start-ups and advertising in general.”
Trevor met his girlfriend, Kelsey, way back in 10th grade when they were still in high school. Since then they’ve gone to Europe on a six-month college study trip. They’ve even conquered the long-distance relationship thing, staying together even while graduating from different universities. Since graduation they’ve both moved back to Orlando, where they share custody of an “extremely hyper English Springer Spaniel” named Oscar.
