Kelly Le, Office Manager

Kelly Le

Office Manager

My name is Kelly and while I wear many hats here at Apple Exteriors, my official job title is Office Manager. I first started here in June 2015. I received my B.S in Financial Economics in 2012 and spent the first couple years out of college working for a large financial institution.

When I joined this company initially, my goal was to assist with some of the office responsibilities that were becoming overwhelming for this growing company. Since then, my role has gradually evolved into my current role.

Analytics and numbers are something that has helped me to understand the full context of how things work and has continuously sparked my passion in helping customers understand their projects’ overall process. My passion towards understanding how things work, how others are affected, and how to create a harmonious process for everyone from our customers to the employees that work at Apple Exteriors runs deep.

While I work very hard in my role here at our family-owned business. I would not have the motivation to succeed without my two kids, Teddy and Eleanor. Being a mom and raising these two is what truly gets me out of bed in the morning and is a constant reminder to live my best life, be present in the moment, and to continue making changes to better myself, my family, and the company that gives other families like mine a safe and beautiful place to call home.
