Kukua has been with Wardens since December 2013. While she started in the accounting department, she found her true calling when a logistics position opened up in the furniture division. As the current furniture operations supervisor, Kukua is responsible for scheduling all furniture deliveries, cubical installations and moving, “re-location” projects. She works closely with the sales staff and support personnel to insure all deliveries are on time, accurate and without product damage. Kukua really enjoys a ‘hands on’ approach to management, especially when working with her team of blue crew furniture installers. At times, you’ll even find her receiving product/unloading vendor vehicles, as well as handling product in the warehouse alongside the blue crew. Kukua has been married to her junior high school sweetheart, Joaquin, for 14 years and they have one teenage daughter. In her spare time, she enjoys traveling to tropical destinations with her immediate & extended family.
