Working at Valley Geotechnical
Starting at Valley Geo as a three-week fill-in Receptionist in 2012, Laura Super quickly grew into a full time Administrative Assistant position. Four years later, she was promoted to Bookkeeper while still acting as an Administrator. She is the first face you see when clients step inside our office in Langley. Laura answers phones, prepares documents and schedules, as well as email correspondence. Along with managing the accounts receivable and payable, Laura also does payroll, taxes, and the yearend books. Exceptionally organized, Laura ensures that all office and administrative issues, along with client relations and accounts, are managed effectively.
When asked about working at Valley Geotechnical over these past 6 years she said;
“It is a very family orientated workplace. You are not just a number in a large company. Everyone knows each other and cares about what they do and who they are”.
Education & Experience
Laura completed her Events and Conventions Management Diploma in 2011. She does not have formal education experience in the Consulting industry, however, her accounting courses she received in University provided a great stepping stone for working at Valley Geotechnical. She has proven to be a quick learner and continues to expand her knowledge. Laura has been taking part-time night courses at the University of the Fraser Valley since January 2018. In May, she completed Bookkeeping 1 with a 99%. She is currently attending Bookkeeping 2 and will be completing it June 2018. These two courses are part of a 6 course Bookkeeping Certificate. Laura’s continued education and experience is a great asset to Valley Geo.
The advice Laura would give to those that are nervous about getting into a job or career that they may not have expected;
“Do not be afraid of the unknown. I was hesitant at first about taking the Bookkeeping position because of the responsibility. However, I found that I really enjoy it and I am now working towards completing a Bookkeeping certificate”.
Outside of Work
Laura celebrated her 1st year Wedding Anniversary in 2018. She loves to spend time with her husband, family and friends. She is proud to be born and raised in BC but has travelled to many different places in Europe such as Switzerland, Ireland, London, Paris, Rome, Florence, Venice, Madrid, and Barcelona.
