All Star Since:
Apala works with the sales team to foster long-term relationships with clients and help grow All Star’s business. To do so, she manages customer information and school details, addresses customer concerns, and contacts prospects to expand the company’s account portfolio.
Apala will be graduating from the University of Washington in June 2020 with a Bachelor’s in Economics. Prior to working at All Star, she worked as a Private Equity Analyst at Cumbria Capital, LLC. As part of her “side-hustle,” she manages her own card games company, which was founded in fall of 2019, and is called JailBird Games. At JailBird, she wears multiple hats, overseeing design and sales efforts along with “poking my nose a good bit in the supply chain!”
During her undergraduate years, she acted as a Certified Trainer for all the Starbucks locations on UW’s Seattle campus. She also spent time as a Valuation Consultant for some startups.
Her favorite part about working at All Star is how welcoming and friendly the whole All Star team is, saying, “People genuinely care for their coworkers and miss being around the office when they’re away, which I find so motivating! I am confident that I will grow to love and enjoy my time here even more with the passing days and hopefully, build strong and lasting relationships.”
Outside of work, Apala enjoys painting, singing, and dancing. She also spends time exploring the restaurants and brewing scene in Seattle, playing basketball or badminton (though she says she really excels at cricket the most), shopping (“it is a problem, really”), and spending time with family and friends. She is a true believer in her capabilities as a stand-up comic, though her family, she says, finds that debatable.
