    My Berkshire Story - Kelsey Carter

    Kelsey Carter, a born and raised Colorado native, laughingly admits that being so, is a "dying breed". She is a highly active mother of two small boys and refers to herself as a "Summer Coloradan", with the longing to be outdoors hiking or camping. "In the winter, I hibernate."

    I have been working at Berkshire Communities full-time

    Pros

    I have worked for Berkshire Communities for 10 years and have enjoyed every bit of it. Berkshire is more than a company...it's a family! They have given me the opportunity to grow from a Maintenance Technician upon hiring, to now being a Property Manager for over the past 3 years. Berkshire gives you the tools, support and opportunity to grow from within and they definitely recognize dedication and hard work. I am truly grateful for the opportunities I have been given and cannot see myself anywhere else than here.

    Cons

    None to speak of. I hope Berkshire continues to grow on the acquisition front to allow more growth.
