In just eighteen months, she accomplished an impressive amount through her recruiting efforts.

She has worked tirelessly to gain a thorough understanding of all the different departments and divisions, ensuring that she can provide Interns with answers to any questions they may have, regardless of the side of the desk they support, because she is someone that truly cares. Zerinee has been instrumental in guiding her Interns toward success, and she has even helped extend multiple full-time offers.

Zerinee is an active participant in College Relationship Development (CRD) events and Employee Resource Groups (ERGs), UNITY and AWE, outside of her usual work routine.

Her primary objective is to prepare them to become full-time employees. Congratulations, Zerinee! We look forward to witnessing all the success you achieve in this new role.

She always brings the energy and the fun and isn’t afraid to get creative. Zee takes a lot of pride in working to raise the bar to develop and grow her people to ensure the full-time offices are getting the best Interns yet. Zee is eager and thorough and holds her Interns accountable. I can’t wait to see Zee and Caree take the Durham Training Center to the moon!” – Senior Manager, Training Centers, Corrine Paynter

“I can’t think of a better role for ZZ. She has such a huge heart and truly cares for the people around her. Her consultants still bring her up to me every day, and it is not surprising because of her work ethic and accountability. Zerinee (Z, ZZ, Z-money) has kept the same energy and passion for ALKU since she walked in the door, and I couldn’t be more excited to see what she accomplishes as a Training Center manager at UNH. I don’t know anyone who truly embodies Have Fun Working Hard® more than ZZ. The future of ALKU is lucky to have you guiding them!” – Sales Manager, Medical Device Regulatory & Clinical Affairs, John Barrett
