Kay was introduced to the scenic business over 40 years ago. She has been privileged to witness the many changes that have taken place over these years. While working as a registered nurse, she also worked part-time for Cigar Box Studios, Inc. in the office answering phones, doing payroll, invoicing and paying bills with a sprinkle of HR.
As Cigar Box Studios, Inc. grew, so did the responsibilities in the office and it became apparent that either she give up the office work to someone else or jump in with both feet as a full time employee. Kay chose the latter and never looked back. Kay’s experience in prior jobs taught her the skills of organization, attention to detail, sensitivity to deadlines and a respect for other employees and their responsibilities.
By attending many seminars over the years, she has kept up with the ever-changing laws and protocols that affect the running of the Business Office. Kay takes pride in the flexibility of her office to assist in whatever challenges may arise throughout the day.
