If you ask any of our clients or our very own team members, what the best thing about Hyperquake is, you will typically get more than one answer. Often, responses include; the amazing project work, exceptional client service, our fun and relaxed atmosphere or sometimes even a reference to a memorable agency outing or experience. While these responses tend to vary from person to person, there is usually one consistent answer on everyone’s favorites list- Our people.
Hyperquake has always prided ourselves on taking the time to make sure that each person joining our team not only has unique skillsets and experiences, but also, the personality, passion and drive that will allow them to contribute to our agency from day one while growing within our team. Whether recruiting co op students, directors or for entry level roles, we search to uncover each candidate’s true potential and determine who will be most able to contribute to the agency goals and truly make an impact on the work that we do.
Often, the people doing the work are behind the scenes- But, not today. We thought we would share a little more about our team, so you can see first hand, how great and unique we all are!
First up, meet Kelsey Hamada Moffe, our General Accountant who has been contributing to the team since 2012.
I’m originally from Walla Walla, WA and moved to Cincinnati to attend the University of Cincinnati…GO BEARCATS! After graduation, I worked briefly in public accounting and then transitioned to a healthcare information management company up in Blue Ash.
In my free time, you can find usually find me at a UC game, since I am head coach of the dance team. I also enjoy spending time with family, friends and my dogs.
Three things you may not know about me:
1. My dad is a Walla Walla sweet onion farmer and I didn’t eat onions until recently.
2. I talk to my dogs like they’re people…yes, they understand me and yes, I’m a crazy dog person.
3. Although I was on the dance team at UC during school, I now consider myself retired and will (hopefully) not be bringing back any moves for company parties/outings.
Also, meet, our design Co op student, Andria Mierzwiak who recently joined the team this month.
I’m originally from the Toledo area, but DAAP brought me down here. I grew up with 8 older siblings, five of whom are step-siblings, and I have all of them to thank for my thick skin and any early stages of gray hair that you might see. I also have a younger brother who we’ve recently adopted from Haiti!
Outside of work/school, I really enjoy running, baking/cooking, and photography. Oh, and a good read, which usually ends up being a murder mystery.
Fun facts about me:
1. I’ve jumped off of the world’s tallest bungee (I have video evidence!)
2. I’ve gone cage diving with great white sharks
3. I have an unhealthy obsession with elephants
Bonus: My life sounds a lot more exciting than it typically is.
