Do Life Enhancement Coordinators do a lot of office work?

Category: Administrative & Office Support


I have an interview in the next couple days for a Life Enhancement Coordinator position. I am hoping for something a little more office oriented to go with my referenced but definitely do not mind doing some moving. I guess I am asking if anyone has a better idea of what the position is so when I go into the interview I have a better idea. The internet is not helping. Thanks.
