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.
Retail Clerk Lead at Papertree Bookstore. I have been in retail management most of my career. I thoroughly enjoy interacting with people and love books.
What drew you to apply to Green River?
I worked in the medical field the last 2 years and wanted to get back into a bookstore. I have a few friends that work at Green River and spoke very highly about it. When I saw the job posting for Papertree I immediately applied. Thankfully I was offered the job! : )
On the car ride to work, what do you listen to?
I love audiobooks, but since my car ride is only 15 minutes, I now listen to 103.7 or 98.9 on the radio. A good mix between country and hip hop is a good start to any day!
What was the very first job you ever had?
What about your new position is most exciting for you?
I’ve worked in a couple bookstores, but never a college one. It’s exciting to be a part of a school atmosphere and interact with people of all ages on a daily basis.
What is one thing you’d love to accomplish in your first year at Green River?
To help create a positive and exciting workplace where students, staff, and faculty will have a good experience.
What three accomplishments are you most proud of in your life?
Spent time in Haiti and Uganda helping out in the schools, orphanages, safe houses and jails.
Ran a 5k and didn’t stop once. That’s a big deal for someone who doesn’t usually run!
The best is yet to come.
If your coworkers were to give you an office nickname, what would that be? Why?
My coworkers already call me a bunch of different “M” names because no one seems to get my name right. : )
For Green River’s annual talent show (this doesn’t actually exist), what hidden talent would you showcase for everyone?
My rope jumping skills.
If G.R.E.E.N. were an acronym for something, what would each letter stand for?
