Get to know Regina Kelley, Director of Program Management at MoxiWorks!
Regina Kelley is like our coach and our cheerleader. She keeps us on time, helps decide which plan of action to take, and helps us execute all while rooting us on along the way. She’s our Director of Program Management, and she gives a whole new meaning to “efficiency.” But she’s also much more than her job at MoxiWorks and we wanted to get to know her a little better. Basically, she’s the perfect victim for our next 20 Questions!
Drum roll please…
1. How long have you been at MoxiWorks?
Five and a half years.
2. What do you do at MoxiWorks?
I help plan and manage the company’s large strategic initiatives and projects.
3. What’s your favorite MoxiWorks product and why?
I like them all! Our Moxi Engage product specifically though because when we came up with the concept of an “all-in-one” CRM (that could also help agents manage their transactions and be more productive and make more money) it was something no one else had done or thought of up to that point and it was really exciting to be a part of from the beginning.
4. What’s your philosophy in life?
It’s corny but it’s “have fun and be yourself.” No matter what situation you’re in, whether it’s at work, home, relationships, or with family, and you can be yourself in it, then the rest just falls into place.
5. What’s your favorite movie?
Anything Disney! Right now, it’s Tangled. My husband’s right now is Moana.
6. What’s your favorite thing about MoxiWorks?
Uhm, everything! The people obviously. From day one five and half years ago when people asked me the same question, it’s always been the people. We just have really fantastic people at not only at what they do, but they also care and support each other and at the end of the day that’s the most important thing. It makes it so much better.
7. What’s the best part of your job?
It’s working with the teams of people who are working on the products and initiatives we’re working on as a company and helping them find new ways to do things. I just love it when the light bulb turns on and they discover that new way. I see their excitement in what they do and helping them do that is the best part of my job.
8. Disney World or Disney Land?
Plot twist: Tokyo Disneyland!
9. Do you consider yourself an introvert or an extrovert?
A balance. I’m a libra, so I’m very balanced. I can be very introverted and very shy, but I also have this extrovert side in social situations or at work.
10. Where did you grow up?
I was born in New Hampshire and lived in Northern Maine for 10 years and then moved to Idaho.
11. What’s the next place on your travel bucket list?
12. What’s your favorite part of the day?
Going home at the end of the day and hanging out with my husband and our pets.
13. What was your first job?
I worked at Domino’s making pizzas and answering phones. I was 18 and they let me manage a store when I was home during the summers.
14. What keeps you at MoxiWorks?
So many things! The people. And just how exciting the industry is right now and our part that we’re playing in that.
15. What do you do when you’re not working?
Disneyland! Traveling to exotic destinations occasionally and hanging out with my husband.
16. Did you choose this career path, or did it choose you?
I definitely chose it. I clearly can remember being in Junior High and we had a family computer that we always used, and my sister and I would stay up all night long building NSYNC and Justin Timberlake pages. When people asked what I wanted to do when I grew up I’d say I wanted to be a CEO of a software company. I was always drawn to the software industry from a really young age.
17. You win the lottery. What’s the first thing you do?
Go to Disneyland Paris!
18. If you could meet anyone dead or alive (or animated) who would it be?
My mom’s mom! My parents named me Regina Theresa after her. She passed away when my mom was only 18, three years before I was born, I wish I could have known her. I would love to be able to do that!
19. What is the most interesting part about working in the real estate industry?
All of it. I guess that it’s so personal. Agents are helping their clients buy and sell homes. That’s where you raise a family and live and it’s very personal to clients and I think that’s what is the most interesting is that it’s the most special. It’s a unique industry and there’s not that many things that personal to people.
20. What is your biggest challenge right now?
My biggest challenge right now is helping MoxiWorks scale, because we’re growing so much, and our customer base is growing and the number of products we have are growing. Helping us find new ways to do things to continue moving at our current or a faster pace is my main priority.
Thanks for letting us sit down with you, Regina! Not only have you shaped MoxiWorks into the machine it is today, but you’re continuously making us better for the future. We can’t wait to see how things evolve next! Also, please take me to Disneyland Paris with you. I’ll be practicing my French on the off chance you feel like putting me in your suitcase.
