This month’s featured employee is Kimberly Esse, Financial Coach at Questis.
What is your role at Questis and how long have you been on the team?
I am a financial coach with Questis and joined the team in June 2022!
What is your favorite part about working at Questis?
Personal finance is personal, and that means every client I work with has their own unique circumstances. Part of what I love about working at Questis is helping clients navigate their own financial wellness path, and getting to create content for the platform and for our clients that resonates with them no matter where they are on their journey. The collaboration is so rewarding.
What is your “Why”?
Financial literacy and wellness is part of social and economic justice, and I am committed to being part of that story. Financial coaching is a critical piece of that puzzle.
What is the most interesting thing about you that your colleagues would be surprised to know?
I was in a musical theater ensemble for a number of years, and still love to sing, dance, or whip out my clarinet when the occasion calls for it. I will DEFINITELY karaoke with anyone who asks me. I even own a karaoke machine!
What is your favorite thing to spend money on?
Food and travel. Preferably at the same time.
What are your personal and/or professional goals for the year?
I am wrapping up my first year in my MSW program and the first semester of my internship, where I have gotten to collaborate with local organizations working toward social justice and equity. I look forward to continuing my internship and studies into 2023. Professionally, I am excited to continue creating helpful and relevant content for Communities- our members-only social network- as well as for workshops and exclusive resources in the Questis platform for our clients!
If you had to eat one meal every day for the rest of your life what would it be?
Nachos or sushi. Sushi nachos!
