CDI Employee Spotlight - Kelsey John
Each month the CDI Employee Spotlight showcases individual CDI staff members, highlighting not only their tireless work contributions but also who they are as a person.
This month’s spotlight shines bright on one of our busiest and well-known team members, Kelsey John.
Kelsey, how long have you been at CDI, and what responsibilities do you have?
“I am the Client Services Coordinator here at CDI in the Hudson, WI office and have been with the company three years this June. As the Client Services Coordinator I receive and assign out meetings and project requests for our Support, Consulting and Development team. I manage the team's calendars and meetings so chances are if you have scheduled a meeting, you have worked with me to do so. I also do a few other tasks here and there such as reporting, but the majority of my day is spent responding to emails and coordinating meetings.”
Can you tell us more about yourself?
"I have two children, ages 7 and 5, who keep me pretty busy. In between work, time with the kids and family, I take every opportunity to travel whether it’s a large or small trip. I am in the midst of planning a big trip to Norway to see some family and explore family history in the next year or so.”
Is there anything about you that your clients wouldn't believe or would be surprised to know about you?
“I am currently in a walking boot for two weeks due to attempting a new trick in Ariel Silks. Needless to say, the trick didn’t go as planned. No broken bones, just an extreme sprain with a very swollen and entirely bruised foot/ankle/lower calf.
Also, my children and I are living with my parents as we wrap up remodeling a home I purchased two years ago. We completely gutted it, added on a large addition and are doing the majority of the construction ourselves so it has taken quite some time to get to this point. Getting excited as we are in the fun stages of painting!”
What is the best part of your job here at CDI?
“I love working with a variety of people and trying to figure out the daily puzzle of calendar scheduling.”
What is the most challenging part of your job here at CDI?
"Sometimes keeping up with the requests and fitting people into a packed calendar can be challenging."
Thanks, Kelsey! We appreciate you taking a moment to share more about yourself and your role here at CDI. Your endless dedication and excellent service to the 650+ organizations we service internationally helps make CDI stand out from the rest.
