Alyssa Kendall, Member Services Project Coordinator
Dear Choptank, On April 19th I had the good fortune to talk to Alyssa, a Choptank Electric Co-op representative. My husband had died. He was the CPA and took care of all of our bills. It has been rough on me to figure the finances and mourn the loss of my husband. Alyssa helped me through my financial questions and what I needed to provide. She was amazingly patient, kind and knowledgeable. I understood her answers. A company is only as good as their representatives.The first company interaction I have decides my opinion of that company. In my opinion she is a treasure and deserves a reward. We should celebrate people like her.
"I am glad to have the opportunity to start a career that impacts so many around me."
