How long have you worked for the County? 3 years and 3 months.
What do you like most about your job? How it challenges me personally. I both like and hate this aspect as it can be draining sometimes, but without it, i wouldn't grow as a person. And of course, my lovely coworkers who have been a huge encouragement and support to me these past couple of years. And who, without, time at work would be a whole lot less entertaining and fun! :)
Why did you decide to work for the County? Initially, it was because I had to complete a one year commitment with either a County or a County contracted agency. Instead of going for a County contracted agency to work for, I decided to go and try my luck with the County itself. I was lucky to get hired that year.
What is your most memorable accomplishment during your County career? Being hired.
When I'm not at work you can find me...At home, I'm such a homebody! You would most likely find me eating, trying my luck with cooking, watching TV, reading or walking.... hopefully sleeping though. I LOVE to sleep. The more the better!
What was your first job? I worked at Foster Freeze.
What is your favorite food? All of it!! Except milk!! Can't drink milk by itself! But if I could eat one thing all the would have to be my mom's cooking. That I miss :)
What is your favorite kind of music? I love Spanish music and Country. Really enjoy banda, corridos and cumbias the most.
What is your favorite sports team? I don't have one. However, I come from a huge Raider fan family.
If you were to travel anywhere in the world for a dream vacation, where would it be? Everywhere!!! I want to travel to each state in the USA at least once and visit every continent... plus..... a couple of cities here and there :)
Where do you see yourself in five years? Living life fully instead of living it day by day.
