A Place to Grow: Employee Story

Last Updated: Last updated Apr 11, 2023

The Coastal environment encourages employees to produce meaningful work in partnership with their coworkers. We also push our people to continuously grow–both personally and professionally.

Employee Growth Story – Miranda Steffes

We first hired Miranda to operate a panel line, but in just over a year, we recognized her skills and dedication to our company values and gave her the opportunity to grow with our company as a team coordinator. She currently manages the onboarding and scheduling for a team of twenty.

“My new position lets me continuously grow. Getting ready for the coming expansion, I’ve had to organize a wave of new clients, big projects and tight deadlines. It’s not always easy, but we’ve overcome the challenges as a team and grown together through the experience! The environment at Coastal really makes it possible for our team to work together to get things done.”
