Who are you?
Besstina Foster, Conference Coordinator and Administrative Assistant
What do you do?
Working in my primary role as a Conference Coordinator, I ensure all conference attendees are registered and all exhibiting material is shipped. It is very important to me that our representatives are ready to hit the ground running at all seventy conferences they attend per year, including the Southern Gas Association (SGA,) Midwest Energy Association (MEA,) and American Public Gas Association (APGA) conferences. I take great pride in what I do and knowing I help to ensure Magnolia River continues to build long-lasting relationships with their clients.
In my role as an Administrative Assistant, I answer the phone, greet clients, and perform other clerical day-to-day operations. It motivates me to know I can help out such a great company by providing that warm and welcoming first impression when a visitor, client, or fellow employee walks through the door or picks up the phone.
Why are you here?
I was hired to work as an Administrative Assistant through a staffing company called Aerotek. After four months, I was offered a full-time position. During those first few months working as a temporary employee, I began to see Magnolia River as a place where individuals can thrive personally and professionally. From the first day I entered the building, I was treated with respect and integrity. The Magnolia River family makes me feel like a valuable member of the team. Magnolia River has given me bigger career aspirations with great networking opportunities and long-lasting relationships. This is why I am here. Thank you, Magnolia River, for giving me a chance and believing in me.
