Vickie Perry is the newest addition to the Elevate team and already has her hands full with several projects. She's our 'traffic manager' and, with extensive experience in education, financials and event planning, is officially in charge of keeping us all on track. From managing the flow of client projects to billing and payroll, Vickie has already become an indispensable member of Team Elevate.
She's a city girl (from Palo Alto) that's gone country (to Granite Bay), and we're so glad she did. She traded in her desktop and commute for a laptop and pet chickens and has adapted to the move beautifully.
