Work Proud - February 2022

Please Join us in CONGRATULATING, Lindsey Pence, Operations & Systems Manager, as our February WORK PROUD recipient!!

We are happy to have Lindsey as part of the PLK family as she’s been with us for 5 years. You can tell by all the wonderful things said about Lindsey that she is a force and a systems guru. She is always there to pitch in whenever and wherever she can. Lindsey holds so many PLK Core Values, it was hard to choose, but the ones that stood front and center in her nominations are Excellence and Ownership. Lindsey brings passion to every little detail, always ready to tackle any task set before her. Let’s look at the wonderful words her team members and peers had to share…

“Lindsey Pence is one of the best human beings I know! She is the sweetest person, and she cares about her team and coworkers. I first had the pleasure of working with her at Mallard Lakes and she is one of the biggest reasons my transition to the property was as smooth as it was. She knew every resident by name and had a personal connection with each of them. Now, she is supporting our teams in a role that is perfect for her! I can't imagine our day-to-day operations going nearly as smoothly as they do without her help.”- Jacque Keller, Regional Manager

Prior to Lindsey’s current position, she worked at Mallard and often helped at Latitude. She helped with everything from leasing, renewals, resolving resident issues, helping maintenance, I could go on and on. I don’t know what I would have done without her help! She has always been helpful, kind, FUN, patient, and I think the world of her😊 I will always be grateful for her time at Latitude and for her continued dedication and attention to detail to help all PLK Communities and Departments. 😊 She is a huge asset to PLK.”- Marilee Cope, Property Manager at Latitude at Deerfield

“Lindsey came to the PLK family with an incredible sense of organization and drive. Her systems on-site in her early days were incredibly impactful in making the Mallard Lakes acquisition easier. It is both an honor and a gift to have the opportunity to work with Lindsey in many capacities and to see her GROW like crazy. She is the behind-the-scenes glue that keeps us all going and is extremely patient. Lindsey gives 110% in all that she does, and she is truly brilliant. I admire her multi-passionate skill-set and am so very Proud to call her my work family.” Jen Van Treese- Training and Marketing Educator

“I’ve had the pleasure of working alongside Lindsey for almost three years now! Each year, she challenges herself to grow; her knowledge, her skill sets, her methods, all while OWNING her position like a BOSS. Lindsey IS the support core of our company. At times, Lindsey’s position tends to morph into this “catch-all” role, and even then, she puts it in overDRIVE and perseveres. It’s evident that she has a passion for service and believes in assisting others to their EXCELLENCE. Lindsey works PROUD every month (actually, every day) and I’m so glad she was the recipient for February. She worked tirelessly throughout January due to the challenges we faced with system integrations, ResMan snafus, and fee/rent adjustments. I would have Lindsey on my team, time and time again. Lindsey, THANK YOU so much for all that you do for me, the Training Team, and for PLK!” – Melinda Howard, Director of Training and Development
