Employer: L. Knife & Son Cos., Kingston
Job: Office manager
My role is to help this top beer wholesaler continue its topnotch distribution of specialty beers and domestic brands. I oversee the accounts for Rhode Island, Maine, Vermont, and Connecticut, preparing monthly financial statements and preparing sales and inventory figures. I have a degree in both accounting and human resources, so being able to use both my analytical and people skills is very rewarding.
The highlight of my week is casual Fridays, when I can wear jeans and an afterwork gathering takes place in the corporate kitchen. The refrigerator there is filled with an assortment of beers, which allows me to actually taste the beers we are selling. My favorites are Michelob Ultra and La Fin Du Monde.
Fun fact: I like to play volleyball at the beach. It helps me stay active with out the drudgery of exercising. I’d do it sunup to sundown if I could.
