This month we shine the spotlight on our SAGE Executive Assistant, Julie Palo. We are extremely grateful to have her a part of the SAGE family!

"In 2008, when the economy crashed, I was working for a Restaurant Design firm in the purchasing department. I oversaw writing up specifications, contract and purchasing the product needed to open the new restaurants. As business slowed down, the company had to lay off most of their employees. I decided to take some time off and figure out what I wanted to do instead of jumping into a job right away. After being off for over a year, I had saw a posting for an Office Manager in Irvine and thought this might be a nice change, so I applied. The interview went well, I felt very comfortable talking to a couple of the staff members and before I even got home they offered me the position. Two weeks later, I was part of the IPG team.

The company office had about 12 employees at the time. Everyone was very friendly and helpful, as I did not know anything about the mobile home world. I had learned all my basic job duties quickly and was willing to help with other departments, as I am one that needs to keep busy. When Sage was established a position opened and I decided to apply for it. I wanted to learn about the Affordable Housing side of the company and I needed to challenge myself a little more. Believe me, I have been challenged, there is never a dull moment here, I accept any task that is given to me and learn something new every day.

I have enjoyed watching the company grow over the last 10 years. I have learned a lot and it has given me the work schedule to be able to spend time with my family and travel. I am very grateful for having the opportunity to work for both IPG and SAGE, along with meeting some wonderful people over the years. Thank you IPG and SAGE Team!"
