Each week, Continuum spotlights an employee who has gone above and beyond. The spotlight is more than just recognition of the hard work being done at Continuum, but a look into the personbehind that work. We find out what our employees do for fun, what their favorite movies are, what their passions are and much more. We also ask them about their experiences working at Continuum and what they like most about their job. Check back each week to find out who made the Employee Spotlight.
This week, Kaeli O'Connell is being featured!
Kaeli is an Interactive Web Marketing Associate and was nominated by her manager, Stella Ubaha, Continuum's Web Architect, for her ability to learn and grow rapidly while on the job.
"Kaeli is a quiet unsung hero on the Web Team. She came to the team with little or no coding experience and now she is growing to be a coding ninja. She has been given one of the toughest jobs of updating the Partner Support Portal (PSP) on a daily basis, which she handles very well. She is also responsible for building and updating R1Soft, posting RSS feeds, updating the Resources Center, and developing pages from scratch. Additionally, Kaeli is involved in creative by designing her pages if there no resources available."
