I began work with Skeo on a part-time basis during grad school and enjoyed it so much, I stayed! Twelve years later, I continue to value the truly unique work environment that is Skeo. Staff lift each other up to learn and grow new work areas and to provide both depth of knowledge and breadth of experience to all we do. Everyone has a place at the table and everyone has a valued role to play in the Skeo family. And, yes, that is honestly how I think of my coworkers: they are family.

When I first joined Skeo, I was impressed to learn that most of my colleagues had been at the company for years. Over seven years later, it's easy to see why – I get to go to work each day alongside an amazing team, knowing that we are making a difference in communities across the country. On top of that, Skeo provides growth opportunities and is always looking for ways to support us – both at work and at home.

I was willing to settle for something that would pay the bills and treat me like a person, and instead I happened across the most employee-focused company I or any of my friends and family have ever heard of. In the two years I’ve been here, Skeo has raised the bar time and time again on what it means to be an ethical workplace and I feel incredibly lucky and proud to work here.

Working at Skeo has been a dream. Not only do I feel valued as an employee, but knowing that the work we do with our clients and communities helps people has been incredibly rewarding. When I have needed support or guidance my colleagues and management have been there to provide it, and in turn, I feel invested in the company’s success as well as my own.
