Degree in Human Resource Management, San Francisco State University
Areas of Expertise
I specialize in payroll. It's interesting to me that most people have no clue what is involved in the payroll process, both on the employer and employee levels. I enjoy working with numbers because there is always an answer that can ultimately be proved.
Why I Do What I Do
I just happened upon this job 11 years ago, and it evolved into a career. I actually love that it is somewhat routine and the deadlines are usually predictable — it makes planning easy.
What I Do When I'm Not Working
Traveling, eating, spending time with my nieces, spinning, reading.
My Clients Would Never Guess...
. . . that I've become so dependent on my 10-key that I can't do simple math in my head anymore.
What's For Breakfast
I Take My Coffee...
Black. Preferably an Americano.
If I Were an Animal, I'd Be...
. . . a penguin, because they get to spend their time in the water, they are super cute, and they are quiet observers (much like me).
