Meet a Kiiper: Charisse Fontes

Our team is comprised of the best and brightest from every field but their dazzling personalities are what really makes Kiip the amazing company that it is. That’s why every month we like to profile a Kiiper so the world can know just how awesome our team is.

In this edition of Meet a Kiiper we caught up with Charisse Fontes. Charisse is THE veteran Kiiper. She is one of the original Kiipers and has been with us since the early days. She’s responsible for all things HR, as well as, creating and maintaining the awesome culture we have here at Kiip.

A better question is, “What am I not doing when I’m not at Kiip?” Just Kidding. When I’m not at Kiip you can find me at home with my family, my 8 chickens and a Frenchie. I have a small consulting company and a BBQ business, so that kiips me busy.
