    Customer Service Representative

    My name is Kim Reynolds. I have been happily married for almost 23 years and have two amazing children. Deciding to work for Mr.Handyman was a major life decision after 30 years managing in the food service industry. During those years I worked in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, hospitals, casual dining, college campuses and owned and ran a catering company and bakery. The food service industry has always been long hours, weekends, and little to no family time so it was time for a change. Food is and always will be my passion but so is customer relations and personal connections. I have always loved talking to people and connecting with them, so deciding to become a CSR was the perfect opportunity for me. I have many goals I would like to achieve working for this company and I am already on my way.

    My name is Jeff Reynolds and I have over 30 years’ experience in the construction business. I also have the same amount of experience in the food industry. I have been in the food service industry since I was 16 years old, and it was where I met my wife. We have been married almost 23 years and have two great boys. The food service industry was the career I chose so I could support my family, but construction / carpentry work is my passion. When I have free time, I like to golf, travel, and spend time with my family. Working for Mr.Handyman has been the best career move I have ever made and I plan on staying with company until I retire.
