Hello from Our New Account Management Associate

Kristin Hansen

Hello! I’m Kristin Hansen and I’m OpenSesame’s new Account Management Associate. I’m excited to join the OpenSesame team and to reenter the startup realm. I spent the last couple of years working in a medical office in various capacities, but before that I worked at local startup WalkerTracker where I assisted with customer support and systems creation. I have a strong interest in relationship building and customer service, and I’m excited to use those skills here at OpenSesame as well as to pick up new skills by helping the sales team.
