Brittany Kelchner, Vice President

Here’s the thing: sometimes when you’re looking for a company to trust and work with, you want to know a little about its people too – and why not? It’s the people who make up a company, do the work and eventually deliver. That being said, let’s take a moment to meet some of our awesome people and you can see for yourself why we, as a whole, totally rock.

This is Brittany Kelchner. Most people know her as Keith’s daughter, and that she is. She’s also second-in-command, and, as she expresses, wears “many hats” when it comes to her work with 2HIRE.US. It’s a good thing she does – any company would be lucky to have an adept problem-solver who looks great in a toolbelt and has an affinity for mathematics…not to mention an adroit hand at out-of-the-box thinking!

As with anyone, there’s a lot more to Brittany than her intellect and her ability to navigate troublesome topics arising on the job – she’s an avid environmentalist and deeply spiritual person. When asked how many pets she has in her family, the usual answer of cats and dogs doesn’t entirely apply: yes, she has cats, Mister and Django, and a dog, Bonnie, but she also has something a bit less conventional to add to her list of non-human companions. Give or take, 1,000 snails: who “happily peruse the selection of leaves in her garden.” Her biggest challenge is how on earth she’s going to name them all. Hopefully, her Associates in Chemistry will come in handy with discovering some new mad scientist ways of telling them all apart!

Everyone has goals, and Brittany is no exception. Like many people, she wants to better herself in less conventional ways than some others. As an aspiring ecologist, naturally, Brittany wants to see our glorious national parks on a road trip – before the glaciers melt and the giant Sequoias are whittled into toothpicks. On a more immediate and personal note, she plans to finish her lovely garden (including erosion control rock walls) and even install a tiled meditation pad so she may continue her yoga exercises peacefully in the woods.

When her dad, Keith, needed help for data entry and a boost in the customer service area 11 years ago, Brittany Kelchner was happy and eager to step up. After writing the customer service policy, she took on other projects within the company, from working on estimates to marketing to simply helping the company show appreciation for our customers.
