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.
My new title is Program Coordinator at Financial Aid office and before that I was working as Program Assistant for the same office.
What drew you to apply to Green River?
Beautiful campus and opportunity to work with interesting and talented people many of whom I already know since I was GRC student myself.
On the car ride to work, what do you listen to?
My ride is very short – I live 1.5 mi from GRC so I usually don’t listen to anything. On the days when we carpool with my daughter (she is a student here) we use that time to catch up with each other.
What was the very first job you ever had?
Picking apples in the orchard. It was a seasonal job and lasted couple of weeks.
What about your new position is most exciting for you?
The opportunity to work with the students and help them to succeed.
What is one thing you’d love to accomplish in your first year at Green River?
I want to master some aspects of my job and get to know more people.
What three accomplishments are you most proud of in your life?
My biggest accomplishment is raising my children to be the people they are becoming. Also getting my degree while being a full-time mom and a first-generation college student, and my job.
If your coworkers were to give you an office nickname, what would that be? Why?
Don’t know…need to ask them.
For Green River’s annual talent show (this doesn’t actually exist), what hidden talent would you showcase for everyone?
Well I can bake and decorate a cake.
If G.R.E.E.N. were an acronym for something, what would each letter stand for?
