As the Manager of Office Operations at Zello, I'm able to be involved with many aspects of the company. I procure the goods and services needed to keep the company running,...more but I also on-board new employees, manage the payroll and benefits, coordinate cultural initiatives and social events, and identify operational problems and find solutions. I am the go-to person for any task or question that isn't clearly someone else's job, and I love the opportunity to learn many different roles.
8th Grade ELA Teacher
2014 - 2017 (almost 3 years)
I am a certified ELA 8-12 Instructor and Gifted and Talented Instructor. During my time as a teacher, I designed and modified the curriculum to address the needs of my students,...more including students with learning disabilities and those who spoke English as a second language. I presented lessons to 18-36 students at a time and tutored struggling students in groups of 3-10. In my last year, I led my students in achieving a 90% passing rate on the 2017 Reading STAAR (compared to 76% statewide).
project lead · I oversaw this project from beginning to end, including design, construction, finish-out, and move-in.
AUSTIN, Texas--()--… · More Zello, the world's most popular push-to-talk service, today announced the company is expanding its Austin presence with a new downtown office at the Hartland Plaza office building located at 1717 W. 6th street.
As the Office Operations Manager at Zello, I helped identify a new office that would meet the needs of our growing company, then managed our office move so that less than half a day’s productivity was lost in moving an office of 28 people with a small budget. As an Operations Manager at Hello World, I coordinated the teacher and student schedules, presentation files, catering (with a tight budget), setup, and presentation timing for an event with 200+ attendees. I custom designed "CIA" badges for 40+ students and instructors in a themed learning experience.
I appreciate roles that are challenging and allow me to learn as I address new problems. I love growing my skillset, whether alone or under a mentor, and solving problems creatively. I work well independently but truly enjoy contributing to and/or leading a team.
