    Hope Fears

    Employment Specialist

    "My favorite part about working at Express is the safe work environment. I'm glad I can always feel free to ask questions and keep learning! The most rewarding part of working here is getting the opportunity to help others.

    Hope lives in her hometown of Sweet Home, Oregon. Before joining Express Albany in September 2022, she worked various customer service jobs, completed college, and was a middle school teacher for a year.

    Naturally independent and reserved, Hope has found she appreciates the challenge of opening up and becoming more outgoing and friendly. Working hard and being a reliable employee are both important to her, but at Express, she gets to do that while having fun with the team.

    When she's not in the office helping others, Hope enjoys exercising, reading, gardening, and gaming.
