    Chad Wells gave props to Erica

    Many employees get upset when they think their pay is incorrect. Erica does an outstaning job researching such claims and explaining in a way that the employee understands that thier pay is actually indeed correct. In the rare instance though that payroll does incorrectly pay someone, Erica quickly and calmly corrects the problem for the employee so they can go about thier day having no doubt that AFN has thier back. Way to go Erica!

    Jessica Cuccia gave props to Catalina

    Has been so wonderful in her role as receptionist. She’s always quick to help when things get a bit chaotic at the reception desk. Catalina has shown so much potential in the few short weeks she’s been with us. As soon as she started, Ms. Cruz was ready and willing to learn and master everything that we do up here (which is a ton). Catalina was working on travel and putting together itineraries the first week that she was here, and that alone was simply amazing. She’s only progressed since she’s been here at AFN. I’m so glad to call her my co-worker, partner and the other half of the Dream Team. I’m very proud to say that I trained this young lady and I can’t wait to see how she’ll flourish with the company in the future. I love and appreciate you, kitty-Catalina! You rock.

I’m so lucky to have her on my team and i look forward to having her at my side in the future. Thanks so much for being here for me when i needed you most Jess, and all the other times too.
