Employee Spotlight-Amanda Ellis #2

Amanda Ellis – Accounting Associate II

Amanda grew up in Vincennes, Indiana and Olney, Illinois with her mother and 2 older brothers. She went to high school at Lincoln High School and then college at Indiana State University and Pt. Loma Nazarene University. Amanda went to school for Education and focused on Middle School Math but along her journey, she realized she loved the idea of teaching and being within the classroom but no longer wanted to teach. Instead, she preferred to focus on math herself which led her to accounting.

Here at FLORES, Amanda is an Accounting Associate II. She loves the teamwork and family oriented aspects we have. Not only does she feel like she gets to bond with her co-workers, but she gets to know her clients a little as well. She has worked in Customer Service for 20 years but feels it’s different when you can work with the same group of people and gain familiarity. Amanda feels accomplished at work when she learns new tasks and client specifics. She loves understanding the clients and feeling like her work is up to date. Amanda aspires for her future here at FLORES to be a long time commitment. She plans to learn as much as she can within the company to help provide the best experience and service for our clients.

Outside of Work, Amanda’s family is her biggest accomplishment. She has been happily married to her husband for 12 years and they have 3 beautiful little girls together. Their daughters are 11, 8, and 3. Her life outside of FLORES often includes taking my children to their sport activities and she loves every minute of it. When she is not doing this, Amanda is often paddle boarding in the ocean, hanging with friends or just lounging at home together with her family. In her spare time, she loves to workout, run, take nature walks, or just watch movies all day.

Amanda resonates with the quote “Here is to strong women. May we know them, may we be them, may we raise them.”  This extends most toward showing her children that they are just as good as anyone, and they should never let anyone tell them otherwise.
