Please tell everyone your new title and a little bit about your professional background.
I am the IT Help Desk Analyst at Green River College.

What drew you to apply to Green River?
The professor that inspired me to pursue a career in IT told me that Green River College was a great place to work. I always thought working at a school helping people was something I wanted to pursue.

On the car ride to work, what do you listen to?
I love listening to video game soundtracks when I am driving to and from work.

What was the very first job you ever had?
The first job that I ever had was a waitress for my family’s restaurant.

What about your new position is most exciting for you?
I am excited for the opportunity to help others and expand my own knowledge and understanding of the world.

I would like to learn Python by the end of the year. I would also like to earn my Cisco Certified Network Associate Security certificate.

What three accomplishments are you most proud of in your life?

    1. I earned my Cisco Certified Network Associate Routing and Switching certificate and
    2. Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration through hard work and determination.
    3. I am surviving in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

If your coworkers were to give you an office nickname, what would that be? Why?
The most common nickname that I have is “Jess” and “Jackie Chan.” I got the “Jackie Chan” nickname, because I study Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and studied Tae Kwon Do. Also my first initial is “J” and last name is “Chan,” so the nickname stuck.

My ability to stand awkwardly and uncomfortably on stage.
