Kari Hopper, Benefits & Leave Administrator, is celebrating 12 years with GMRE! Kari came to GMRE in 2011 after being recruited from her previous role as an office manager for a custom home builder. Upon joining GMRE, Kari was an Administrative Assistant before moving to her current role as the Benefits & Leave Administrator.
