Kimberly Alexander-Pounds

Carrier Relations Representative

My name is Kim. I am a CA Native that is now living in Arizona. I’d love to say my personal hobbies are reading, hiking, and baking… But the truth is… I am accomplished if I sleep for 6-8 hours every night so we will say my personal hobbies are dreaming about reading, hiking, and baking when I get enough sleep to have and/or remember the dreams of my lovely hobbies. I am a busy parent of a very busy 13 year old (ATTITUDE) but he is my favorite person so I will say I like him the most. I’d say his attitude is what I dislike the most but I guess it’s growing on me lol. I think I am funny but the people that know me best would more than likely disagree. I also believe I am extremely intelligent but again, the people that know me best would more than likely disagree. The one thing I know that I am without disagreement is loyal my family and friends know that they can always count on me. Pardon the selfie. The sun was shining really bright inside of that dark building.

Amanda Vang

Sr. Carrier Compliance Representative

Hello, my name is Amanda Vang. I am a pastry and matcha tea connoisseur. I love traveling on my free time. I am an optimistic gal, always cheering on the team whether it’s a win or loss. I am all about balance and making sure my friend’s lives achieve balance too. I dislike being indecisive, I will spend minutes and hours analyzing something so simple. Such as, do I want to eat something sweet or savory? What I do like is food and good company. 

Adriana Pacheco

Carrier Compliance Representative

Hello, my name is Adriana Pacheco. I have been with Ready Logistics for 6 years now. I can be an introvert & may come off as a little shy. However, once you get to know me you will see how AMAZING I am. In my free time I enjoy going to the beach with my husband & children. I love reading or listening to audio books. I am into astrology & I’m a very spiritual person. I am not a fan of hot tea or Sushi, let’s just say I hate seafood in general. 

Lauren Lundbeck

Sr. Carrier Experience Specialist

Hi, my name is Lauren. I have been with Ready Logistics for 5 years. I am from a small town in Illinois. I moved to Arizona to continue my college degree. I graduated in May 2020 with a degree in marketing. I am a book worm; so, in my free time I love to read true crime and self-improvement books. I also enjoy painting and coloring. I am a huge football fan, Go Bears!
