My name is Melissa T. Longo, and I’ve been a proud family member of eVero since June 6th — only a month! I’ve met the most amazing people to ever know and we’re all a team. It feels so wonderful and new to me!

I knew about eVero for about a year prior to joining. I use eVero’s MyCarePortal™ for my own disability care and submitting my monthly expense report. I always liked how everything was so organized, compared to me having to manually scan 8-10 pages into one file, or keeping up with my scanner — which may or may have not been evil. (We will never know!)

Fast forward to a year later: My job coach, Alyssa Y., recommended eVero to me as a possible job opportunity and a way to further my career path.

Every day I come into work, I always learn something new; no matter if it’s our internal CRM & Ticketing system, how to help our clients and my fellow team members, or what else to learn in the newness that is Technology. Personally, I’ve never been somewhere where I feel a part of something evolutionary before! I can be hands-on with my own learning, such as watching instructional videos (on topics like Invoicing, Brokers, or ‘Release Snapshots’) on eVero Ed, or even shadowing my coworkers to learn first-hand how to better resolve an issue for a client, so the both of us can have a better relationship.

On my downtime, I’m a spoken word artist, poetess, and kalimba player (…not a ninja, but close).

I attended my first-ever eVero party at the end of July. We had an office party for our CEO’s birthday, where we raced with a car on a wooden spoon! Nathalie H. (Possible Queen, Client Support Manager, and Support Staff Supervisor) won the race, and John Peterson came in as the Runner-Up, while I took my sweet time.

Everyone very much enjoyed the day! I had no idea that a toy car could ever stay on a wooden spoon like so — Who knew that physics would be on our side that day? Nothing like great food, great people, and even greater prizes at a place that treats everyone well.

I wrote a short poem inspired the party:


A time

Near and far

Through space, there was a race

With a mighty spoon

All were tested on this day
