month, I have used a few words using the letters of her name!|
K – Knowledgeable! Being a senior here at Northwest Missouri State
University, she has definitely experienced many things that are able
to help her when serving a freshman population. Her customer service
skills are exceptional, and everyone that she helps, I know walks away
with the answer they are looking for.

lives; however, Kristen manages her schedule well. She is by far the
best Desk Assistant when it comes to letting me know when she needs
time off or needs to switch shifts. This helps me out a lot, so I can
find replacements in an efficient manner.

involved in many activities on campus. This year she has been serving

someone at the desk. Residents want to talk to her, and she definitely
wants to get know the residents of the building. Building community is
huge in Kristen eyes, and it definitely shows in her relationships
with the residents.
T – Thoughtful! There is a desk task to send me updates for any
supplies that we are running short on, and I can definitely rely on

update me on supplies, she is sure to type a positive message in each
one of the emails. This truly makes a difference in my day, and I
appreciate her for these random acts of kindness.
E – Entertaining! The Hudson Perrin Front Desk is definitely a fun
place to be, Kristen helps bring that atmosphere to life. She is a
very humorous person, and is always talking in silly voices, telling
jokes, and playing games at the desk. This really helps bring a
welcoming feeling to residents needing assistance; they feel
comfortable asking anything and this is very important to me as the
N – Noteworthy! Kristen is definitely a noteworthy Desk Assistant for
the month of March. She goes above and beyond in her position. She
gets her tasks done efficiently, builds awesome relationships with
both residents and staff, and is an all-around amazing person. Not

over the years! Her effort to get to know me on an individual basis
has shown how caring she is, and has made a major difference in my
time working for Residential Life.
