Team Spotlight - Jessica Smith

March 21, 2022

Today, meet Jessica Smith, Nlets’ Associate Accountant. She has been with Nlets for almost two years and shared her favorite part of working at Nlets (and so much more).

Q. What are the Primary Responsibilities of Your Role?

A typical day with Nlets is always a bit different and that is why I love working here. Usually, at the beginning of the month, I am working on billing, Accounts Receivable, charging customers for services, and completing month end tasks for the prior month. I also enter all Accounts Payable invoices in the system and do bi-weekly check runs. On a daily basis, I am applying customer payments, assisting with customer and vendor contracts and anything else that comes up. Last, I manage the accounting@nets.org email and make sure we are attentive in responding to our vendors, customers, and internal requests. I have not had a day where I have had nothing to do, that is for sure. 

Q. What is Your Favorite Part About Working at Nlets? Why?

My favorite part about working for Nlets is not only their mission but also how they treat their employees. I love working for a company that strives to serve our law enforcement community and takes action to support the causes close to their employees’ hearts through donations. Above all, Nlets truly pursues our mission and every day we take action to serve the community which is important to me.

Q. When You’re Not at Work, What Do You Like to Do? Hobbies? Secret Talents?

When I’m not at work, I love spending time with my family and friends. We often go camping, hiking and/or taking out our side by side out in the desert. We have two horses, two dogs and a cat. I grew up horseback riding ever since I was young, so if I have time, I’m usually horseback riding with my daughter or hiking. I’ve done rodeos with a drill team, gymkhanas, and used to ride western and English plus jumping.  Now, I like exploring new trails to ride my horse on.

Q. Why Did You Initially Choose to Work at Nlets? How Did You Hear About It and What Has Kept You Here?

Initially, I chose Nlets because my experience matched what Nlets was looking for and the company was closer to my home than my previous position. However, I’ve stayed due to the flexibility with my schedule, having wonderful co-workers, competitive pay and enjoying what I do.
