    Felicia Hering - Office Manager
    Felicia Wilde

    Office Manager & Outside Sales Representative

    Felicia has been working with Express Employment Professionals since June 2009. Cowlitz County Express has had the privilege of being Felicia's only employer. She started working with Express in high school mainly helping with filing and little projects around the office. She then transitioned to a part-time Front Office Coordinator while finishing up her high school credits while also starting her college credits with full-time credit hours at Lower Columbia College. Once she graduated high school and received her Associates Degree, Felicia was transitioned to full-time and in April 2015 she was promoted to a Recruiter position. Felicia was most recently promoted into Outside Sales. To say that Felicia is a reliable, hardworking, and loyal employee would be an understatement. For Felicia, the most rewarding part of working with Cowlitz County Express is seeing the joy and appreciation that people have when she and her team are able to find them the perfect fit!

    Though Felicia did some moving around in her younger years, she was born right here in Longview and has been here through high school and college. When Felicia is not working, you can find her practicing her softball skills! She played as a lefty pitcher and an outfielder in both high school in Kalama and college at LCC. She even shares her knowledge of the game with others, as she often coaches recreational softball teams - which goes back to her passion of coaching and helping people. Felicia is also an active member in Longview Early Edition Rotary. Felicia's future is bright with Cowlitz County Express and we are so happy to have her as part of our team!
