Operations Manager - Email Me
Most people in the office call me Liz. I am the operations manager at Kain & Scott. My sole responsibility is to make the process of filing a bankruptcy at Kain & Scott as soothing and comfortable as possible. They say that "micro managing" is a bad idea, but I don't - especially when it comes to micro managing the client's experience with us - no detail is too small if it makes the process more painless for the client. FUN FACT: When I was 3 years old I was at the zoo when a monkey jumped on the cage right in front of me. It scared me so bad - it made me fiercely afraid of dogs for the next 10 years!?

I am a care giver by nature.

I am here to help soothe the pain and make the process as comfortable for the client as possible. FUN FACT: I once went sliding down a hill in the winter time and got stuck under a car.

Being a good listener is important in this business. I like to hear the client story and then offer reassurance that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. When they say it is darkest before the dawn that is so true - I know - because I am part of that light you see right after the dark. That is why I love what I do.

What I enjoy about working at Kain & Scott is the absolutely wonderful people, relaxing atmosphere, and the fact that I am constantly learning and growing here.
