Hello and Happy Friday! Let’s celebrate this Friday with another edition of the Employee Spotlight Series! This week, we would like to introduce you to Chenoa Marklevitz. Chenoa is a Vendor Correspondent/Statement Caller and has been a part of the SpendMend team for two and a half years! When asked why she looks forward to coming to work, she stated, “I enjoy the job itself and the people are amazing.” A fun fact about Chenoa is that she was adopted from the Philippines as a baby! She grew up in Oscoda, MI; on Lake Huron, and was the oldest of five children. Before working for SpendMend, Chenoa was a trained fine dining server for fifteen years. Her favorite restaurant she worked at with Charley’s Crab! She met a lot of great people through working there and she considers them family. Another fun fact about Chenoa is that she loves the beach! Chenoa stated, “The beach is my serenity!” Her love for the beach started when she was young. She has fond memories of when she used to go with her grandmother every day, and they would pack a big lunch and stay out all afternoon. After the beach, they always went to the local ice cream shop nearby for bubble gum ice cream! With summer right around the corner, bubble gum ice cream and a trip to the beach sounds like a great way to start it off! One of Chenoa’s favorite hobbies is doing arts and crafts! Her whole life she has always loved art and creating things. Her favorite craft is taking something and reinventing it into something new! Chenoa also learned how to crochet when she was a little girl from her grandma and cherishes that craft greatly. Her favorite craft to make is when it is meant for someone she loves. If anyone is looking for a buddy to craft with, Chenoa has got you covered!
Chenoa does a great job at SpendMend, and we had several of her co-workers express how they value her on the team. Dan Hutchins, Audit Manager, said “Chenoa has been a positive influence and always exudes an enthusiasm for her job and SpendMend. She is a great asset, and we all enjoy working and communicating with her on a daily basis.” It was great getting to know a little more about Chenoa and we really appreciate all the hard work she does! Thank you!
