MARTINSBURG, W.Va. --
Airman 1st Class Kylee Premo is a financial management specialist for the 167th Comptroller Flight and the 167th Airlift Wing Airman Spotlight for December 2022.
As a financial specialist, Premo is responsible for managing accounting records and systems, processing financial transactions, performing audits and financial analysis and providing customer service to the Airmen of the 167th AW.
“Airman 1st Class Kylee Premo has been a go-getter since enlisting in the unit,” said Master Sgt. Bryan Turner, the 167th CPTF financial management superintendent. “I could see immediately that A1C Premo is energetic, driven, and determined to gain as much knowledge as she can about our career field to better serve our Airmen. Within her first few weeks of duty, she had already reorganized our customer service area to help expedite members in and out-processing. A1C Premo doesn’t shy away from new tasks or challenges and is always looking for more ways to help the flight. I am excited to see her progression and think she will prove to be a great asset to the unit in the future.”
