The Team's Work Makes The Dream Work - Getting To Know Office Manager Sara Greenbeck
Duarte, California, Aug. 16, 2018 – Holy Awesome Sauce: Sara Greenbeck serves as Office Manager for Alco Building Solutions, but her title pales in comparison to the value Sara brings to ABS team members and clients every day. She is a master of her craft, and regularly acts as the “oil” to keep this machine trudging along without delay or hitch.
On a regular day you can observe Sara working with multiple ABS Teams including: Operations, Engineering, Accounting and Business Development in a supporting role. Sara’s ability to maneuver between internal groups has made her invaluable, but it’s what’s behind all the blood, sweat, and tears that makes her truly special.
Sara personally and deeply cares about the work she does. Seems simple right? Wrong. You would be hard-pressed to find a person more passionate… more dedicated to serving others than what we have observed in Sara. In truth, it’s humbling to see someone care so much, and be so dedicated to doing excellent work.
We took a few moments to speak with Sara about where her passion and commitment to exceeding expectations comes from, and here’s what she had to say:
Interviewer: Does your passion for what you do come from any past working experiences?
Sara: Before ABS, I served as a Center Director at Kindercare Learning Centers for 17 years. I had the privilege of working with children, families, and the best teachers and caregivers out there! My passion grew as I was able to realize the direct impact my daily work had on facilitating a safe, and fun learning environment for children. Regardless of the hat I wore at any given moment, I always felt the desire to have a greater impact!
Interviewer: How do you balance supporting so many groups, and still stay on top of your work load?

Interviewer: Where do you see yourself in 5 years with our firm? What are your professional goals?
Sara: I am new to the field, so it is all about learning! Within the next 5 years, I would like to move into the world of project management as a project engineer.
