"My name is Kelsa and I graduated the Apartment Association of Kansas City’s “Introduction to Leasing as a Career” class in April of 2020. This class was an incredible first step into the world of leasing; covering all bases from initial lead responses to tips for touring apartments and even getting accurate and pertinent information when taking work orders. Our course instructor, Pam Lakey, was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and has been a great resource even after I completed this course.

Since my course completion, I was hired at Worcester Investments where I have grown not only in my personal skills but within the company as well- being promoted to Assistant Property Manager within my first year, and even winning the Team Worcester Rookie of the Year Award for 2020. (It’s easy to be good at something when you love what you’re doing!) I am grateful to have found something I am passionate about, and plan to continue my career growth, using AAKC courses as solid grounds for moving forward. I am beginning my CAM (Certified Apartment Manager) Course through the Apartment Association of Kansas City this spring and am excited for the forward progress it will allow and for the opportunities that I have so graciously been a part of."
