How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started with FourKites as executive admin support & office manager. Several months into the role, I discussed growth opportunities with my manager and expressed an interest in moving into the HR function. The company supported my growth by sponsoring my SHRM certification and at my 1yr anniversary, I officially transitioned into a HR role!
