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.
I am a Systems Administrator (IT Specialist 3). I’ve been working with computers in higher education for almost all of my working life, starting with working in my college music computer lab and recording studio. From there, I’ve moved on to bigger and better things, but I still enjoy putting my computer skills to use helping others learn.
What drew you to apply to Green River?
I wanted to be in a bigger, more complex environment while still working in education; applying to Green River helped me meet those goals.
On the car ride to work, what do you listen to?
Almost always music, but beyond that it really varies based on the day, my mood, the weather… I try to listen to a diverse mix of things to keep one genre or style from getting too stale.
What was the very first job you ever had?
I worked as a legal assistant and sometimes computer tech for my aunt.
What about your new position is most exciting for you?
I’m really looking forward to working with a new team on new technologies in a much bigger environment than I have before.
What is one thing you’d love to accomplish in your first year at Green River?
I’d like to get to know all of the coffee shops in the area.
What three accomplishments are you most proud of in your life?
- Achieving the Boy Scout rank of Eagle
- Graduating from college
- Being selected to perform with a Southern California honor orchestra
For Green River’s annual talent show (this doesn’t actually exist), what hidden talent would you showcase for everyone?
Though I work with computers, I have a fair amount of musical experience; I could perform some musical selections on my main instrument family, percussion instruments.
If G.R.E.E.N. were an acronym for something, what would each letter stand for?
