Zoie, welcome to UpKeep!!!
Welcoming Zoie Kline to the UpKeep family as our new Sales Development Representative!
We are beyond excited to introduce a new member in our UpKeep family – Zoie Kline! Zoie is joining our Sales ranks as an SDR and we can’t wait to have her ROCK IT in the coming weeks!!! Welcome to UpKeep, Zoie!
We’re excited to welcome you to the UpKeep family, Zoie! Tell us a little about yourself.
I’m an east coast native who grew up in Philadelphia, PA, and have now been living in LA for a week and counting. I love traveling to different countries and trying the domestic beers in each place. (So far, Costa Rica has had the best one.) I have two younger sisters who mean the world to me and are my motivation to do well and be an amazing role model for them. You can usually find me at any of the SoCal beaches with my longboard, any rad skiing and snowboarding mountains, or looking for any hiking trails near-by! I’m always sniffing out a road trip too. Still haven’t been to the Grand Canyon!
How did you first get into Sales?
I first got into Sales in the food and beverage industry. I absolutely loved meeting new people every day and upselling the best meals and bottles of wine to pair with the dish. I always knew I wanted to continue my career in a customer facing professional role where I could enjoy and master what I’m good at. (Sales!)
Why are you excited to join UpKeep?
I’m so excited to join UpKeep because of the amazing culture and the ability to sell a solution that can truly help such a vast majority of people. I was so surprised to find that so many people in the industry spend their personal time transferring data from paper to excel instead of with their families or focusing on themselves. UpKeep provides that opportunity to get personal time back and optimize your business! I love the company’s product and mission.
What are your first thoughts about the culture and team so far?
I’m overwhelmed in such a great way. If I could describe it in a sentence, it would be: “This is how a company should treat a valued employee.” The training and culture seems so genuine and family oriented with a strong work ethic vibe. The whole team has given me such a warm welcome and I can’t wait to get to know everyone more!
We have to know – what is your favorite story from working at the Ritz-Carlton?
There’s so many. I think the best story is when Justin Bieber stayed with us and came into the restaurant for breakfast one morning. He had a random burst of energy and ran around to all of the employees telling us he had such a great idea for a song and begged us for a piece of paper and pen so he could write down his creativity. When one of us finally had some paper to give, he was so thankful he offered to give us his watch. His very expensive nice watch. Was definitely an interesting morning!
And finally, perhaps most importantly, what would you be if you were a kitchen utensil?
OK – I said this once and I’ll say it again. I stand by this. A spatula! This utensil is used for every dish and gets to be a key helper in making the meal turn out to be the best it can be. It’s so versatile in the kitchen and is really a must-have. Whether you’re making eggs, grilled cheese, or brownies, I’ll be there.
