AAM Employee Spot Light – Kimberley Wuensch

 

Employee Name: Kimberley Wuensch

Employee Title: Senior Accounting Administrator

How long have you been with AAM? 13 years

What does your daily work routine include? Piles of paper and a lot of typing! Because I’ve worked in the accounting field for many years I have well rounded abilities. However, on a typical day I will complete invoice payments, process receivables, review available funds and work on an array of financial reports.

What do you like best about your job? In the greater scope of the company as a whole; I love the respect and compassion that is demonstrated from the top down toward the employees. Employees are treated as people and never as a means to an end.

What do you like least about your job? AAM employees tend to stick with the company making the opportunity to change roles very rare.

What attributes does someone need to have in order to be really successful in your position?

The ability to pay close attention to details; handle constant change; work with deadlines; remember every nuance of every single property requirements; be able to tackle roadblocks and make instant decisions. I start each day with a mental game plan of what I need to accomplish and adjust it as the day progresses.

 

What are your current goals? To smile more often.

 

What would you do if you did not do this job?  I find it fascinating, challenging and fun to interact with the public so perhaps marketing; or mentoring new businesses; with a dash of retail therapy.

 

What do you do for fun away from work?  My husband and I both enjoy cooking and gardening. We had a bumper crop of basil this year so I froze a batch of pesto I made from scratch. We are fans of the Saturday morning show, Pioneer Woman, and like to surprise each other by trying new recipes.

 

What is your greatest accomplishment? I’m an organizer so if opportunity presents then I make improvements. When I arrived at AAM they did not have W-9 for their vendors so over the years I’ve collected over two thousand W-9s. I also write “how to do” articles for everything. For instance, I have step by step instructions explaining how to print tenant statements for every management program we use. Before leaving each day I put everything away so I can begin the next day fresh and organized.

 

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? I remember in 5th grade I had thoughts of becoming an attorney. As an adult, I briefly worked at a law firm completing research and copying case files. Being an avid reader I found the material fascinating to read.

 

If you had a magic wand, what cartoon character, movie star or athlete would you become and why? I would be Samantha on Bewitched because I can wiggle my nose and I’ve always wanted to know what it’s like to sit on a cloud.
