Administrative Assistant

"Working with Invest Blue will give me an opportunity to learn and have a continuous improvement because the company is expanding as well as the processes to produce a better output to the clients. They also treat their employees like family and they don't underestimate what we are doing. They value their employees as much as they value their clients. They are also open for suggestions whether good or bad to fill the gap to all grey areas of the process."

Love has a Bachelor's degree in Management Accounting. She was an intern in Regent Management Property Inc. during her college days and was assigned in the Accounting and Finance Department. In this role she was responsible for updating transactions on a daily basis in their accounting system. She likes working in the financial industry because aside from becoming financially literate, it gives her the opportunity to manage her own finances as well. She wants to know how insurances work and she believes that helping people with their finances makes such a great impact because she does not only learn but also helps make her clients' lives easier.

During her spare time, Love usually watches Youtube videos relating to travel and lifestyle. She's also fond of watching Korean Dramas and hanging out with her friends during weekends.
