Mrs. Cervantes has been with Balestrieri Environmental & Development, Inc. since 2007. Nicole serves at the Finance and HR Manager for the firm reporting directly to Executive Management by managing and overseeing the daily operations of those departments. She is responsible for establishing and enforcing proper methods, policies and procedures for top notch client service including: accounts receivable and cash-flow functions, contract review an processing, subcontractor management, accounts payable functions, monitoring data and producing financial reports for Executive Management and coordination of fleet purchases, maintenance and repairs. She is also responsible for our new-hire process, medical surveillance, benefits and wellness program, as well as a member of the Accounting and Financial Women’s Alliance. Nicole’s professional goal this year is to practice continuous learning and growth. One of her favorite quotes was said by Leonardo Da Vinci, “Learning is the only thing the mind never exhausts, never fears and never regrets.” Daily, Nicole pushes herself to stay positive and be a role model. “I am thankful for the opportunity to work for a firm that encourages my continued education and challenges me to step outside of my comfort zone.”
Nicole’s personal goals are to smile and laugh every day and to be the best mom, wife, daughter and sister she can. “I strive to be honest, reliable and healthy. I plan to spend as much time with my children and have as many adventures as time allows.” Nicole enjoys cheering her kids on at their sporting events, camping, reading, playing euchre and traveling. This year her goal is to visit three Wisconsin State Parks that she has not been to.
Nicole’s favorite current project is developing a Wellness Program for all Balestrieri employees and their families. For the past four years Balestrieri has had a team competing in a 5K obstacle mud run and a very fun holiday time Reindeer Run. “The Reindeer Run has a different theme every year and is fun for the whole family. Get bundled up and join us this year!” Also this year, we have monthly health/fitness challenges and a large company event every quarter.
We’re glad to have her on our team!
