An area native who grew up on a farm between Humphrey and Lindsay, Shuraya Frauendorfer believes recently taking on the role as kwELITE’s accounting specialist came at the perfect time.
“KwELITE is a great fit for me because it encompasses everything I enjoy: I love numbers (accounting), real estate, and property management,” she said. “I also felt it was a great opportunity to learn from the best in the business as I continue to grow my own rental portfolio.”
Frauendorfer graduated from Humphrey High School in 2012 and went on to attend and play volleyball at Central Community College in Columbus before continuing her education at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. There, she earned a Bachelor of Business Administration degree.
Upon graduation, she went to work for the Nebraska State Treasurer’s Office. At the end of November 2019, she moved to Omaha and continued her career in government accounting for Omaha Douglas Public Building Commission. Located in downtown Omaha, the Building Commission managed all the buildings/offices for the City of Omaha and Douglas County. This includes the Civic Center, Douglas County Courthouse, Juvenile Justice Center and also a couple parking garages.
In December 2021, she and her boyfriend, Brian, relocated to Columbus to raise their son, Phoenix, who was born in July 2022. She stays busy outside of work and spending time with her family. Frauendorfer said she has spent the last five years fixing up homes and going on to either sell or rent them out.
“All of which has been rewarding,” she said.
Animals are also a passion.
“I am a huge animal lover and want to rescue them all,” she said.
So much so, Frauendorfer is known for often driving around town and helping owners find their lost pets. She said she hopes to begin volunteering at the animal shelter soon.
In her role at kwELITE, Frauendorfer handles accounting for several Parkway Plaza businesses. She said it’s an ideal fit.
“I realized this job was not only a great extension of what I was already doing but also encompassed everything I am passionate about, accounting, property management and real estate. With a couple of properties under my own belt, this was also a great opportunity for me to learn from the best in the business,” she said. “It has empowered me to think more about my personal goals and how I can achieve them.”
