Employee Spotlight: Mich
Mich joined Yempo in January 2020, a new job to usher in the new year. What was supposed to be a calm transition period for a new employee became a baptism by fire, as she was pushed to provide remote support to everyone during the lockdown. Many months later, Mich has thrived amid the challenges. Read on to learn more about her Yempo experience.
