We’d like to take a moment and recognize our newest employees to Green River. Please take a moment to learn more about them, in their own words.
Please tell everyone your new title and a little bit about your professional background.
Hello Green River Family!
My name is Tatyana Levchuk. I have recently joined the Workforce Education Department as a workforce education coordinator. I came from Highline College, where I served students as a financial aid advisor for more than seven years. I feel greatly privileged to be able to continue work in a role that supports students in their academic endeavors.
What drew you to apply to Green River?
Green River is known for its commitment to providing access to higher education and employment opportunities to all who seek it, regardless of their abilities to pay. I wanted to be a part of it.
On the car ride to work, what do you listen to?
Mainly Spirit 105.3
What was the very first job you ever had?
I got my first job at the age of 18, working as a food service worker at a children’s hospital in Ukraine.
What about your new position is most exciting for you?
The best part of my job as a workforce coordinator is hearing back from students about how they are overcoming their daily challenges and meeting their goals. It is also knowing that the work I am doing provides opportunities for others to grow and make an impact in their society.
What is one thing you’d love to accomplish in your first year at Green River?
I hope to become a valuable team player and a good resource for our students.
What three accomplishments are you most proud of in your life?
First, is my recent bachelor’s degree from CWU. Second, is my new job with Green River; I really enjoy being a part of my new team. And third, is my family and my children. My son is getting ready to join GRC next year as a running start student, and I’m very excited about it.
If your coworkers were to give you an office nickname, what would that be? Why?
Organic—because I am known for preaching healthy lifestyle and organic food wherever I go.
For Green River’s annual talent show (this doesn’t actually exist), what hidden talent would you showcase for everyone?
I enjoy designing fresh flower bouquets, especially those that are locally grown. So I would create one of my favorite perfect bouquets.
If G.R.E.E.N. were an acronym for something, what would each letter stand for?
