At Biola since:
Describe your job:
I order textbooks, work on course schedules, assist with processing TPAs, and answer whatever questions arise or do my best to find somebody who knows! Lots of project work, along with maintaining a smile throughout the interruptions. Serving my team so that their work is a bit easier.
If I could pick any actor to play me in the movie of my life, who would it be and why?:
Kyra Sedgwick - love her brown eyes and fashion sense!
What always brings a smile to your face?:
Telling people that my husband Carlos and I were high school sweethearts. We are both big believers in new beginnings.
What do you enjoy most about working at the School of Education?:
The opportunity to make new friends across campus and to attend classes toward my master's degree in intercultural studies here at Biola. I also enjoy attending many of the events sponsored by the Department of Multi-Ethnic Programs offered at Biola through the leadership of Glen Kinoshita. I am energized by students who remind me of my own kids!
What was the most ridiculous thing your pet has done? :
Chew through a metal security door!
What's the first dessert you go for at Thanksgiving (or anytime)?:
What's one thing we generally wouldn't know about you?:
I worked as a chauffeur for a limousine company while attending court reporting school. It was a great job for a student — time to study and practice on the steno machine, which was rather like learning a foreign language and a musical instrument all in one. Plus, it makes for great stories when conversation slows up!
