Meet Charlene German
Charlene joined Centauri almost one year ago as our Agency Licensing & Relations Specialist and is responsible for building relationships with agents while maintaining agency portals. As a key member of the team, she aids our Regional Sales Managers to efficiently keep the Sales team running smoothly. Additionally, as a mighty department of one, she handles day-to-day operations and resolves issues for our valued agents.
Charlene is an avid reader and music lover, especially live music. She will dance to anything with a good beat, but Beyonce is her go-to artist. She loves to dance and go on adventures with her friends and family. Travel is an important part of her life, and she tries to incorporate it into her plans as often as possible. Her daughter, Jaya, is a competitive gymnast so she spends a lot of time sitting in the gym stands, cheering her on, and traveling to competitions.
One of her favorite hobbies is writing. She earned a bachelor’s degree in English from Florida A&M University. Her love for writing has created an opportunity for a side-business called Tiny Pen Writing. She specializes in personalized poems, love letters, wedding vows and essay/research papers. Her clients are left happy, and her business is left thriving.
There are a couple of qualities about Charlene that make her stand out as a true star. First, she is known around the office to be a bit of a picky eater, however, she loves trying new restaurants (depending on the menu). She even knows about secret items not listed on the menu. Second, she enjoys celebrating her birthday the entire month of September. Every weekend is carefully thought-out and planned to perfection in true Charlene fashion.
Saving the best part for last, Charlene is a proud kidney donor. In 2011, she donated a kidney to her brother who needed a transplant. I guess you can say she gave him the gift of a lifetime. That’s just the type of person Charlene is. She has a huge heart and would do anything for her family.
From this spotlight, we hope you get to know a little more about Charlene and think she’s as fantastic as we do!
