Flora Mende

Flora Mende has been working nearly two years with the Facilities Management department at the University of Minnesota. “Every day is different and I’m happy to work here,” she said. Originally from the Philippines, Flora came to the United States in 1995. She says she likes to joke around with her friends. “In my free time I clean my house so no one can say, ‘You clean at work but not at your home.’”

Supervisor Ruthann Manlet said, “Flora's attention to detail makes her stand out. She is known across campus as one of the Motli employees that can make a restroom shine. The customer of this area raved about Flora's work. She is truly someone in Facilities Management who makes a difference.”

Shift Supervisor Kelly Richardson said, “Flora's work style is fast paced and accurate - her goal is to get the job done right the first time. She takes a lot of pride in what she does. Flora comes in every day with a pleasant mood and is fun to work with. I have thoroughly enjoyed having her on Motli.”
