Office Assistant

 

Why did you choose this career? After teaching as a Head Start preschool teacher for the last 6 years, I decided that teaching was not my forever career as much as I love children and that it was time for a change. I knew I wanted to continue helping people but in an office environment. I had a feeling Gale would be a great opportunity for me to begin my new career.

What is your favorite part of your job? Since joining the Gale team, I have enjoyed how I can help others with my position but also how everyone at Gale is happy to help me as well as I learn the ins and outs of the office! Being a part of a company that supports each other and works as a team is important and makes work enjoyable.

Who are you outside of Gale? When I am not at Gale, I like to spend time with my boyfriend by hanging out around our house with our dog, Maya, and our cat, Pumpkin (when we’re not working on the house to update it and make it our own!). As well as, going out with friends and family, visiting different breweries and wineries, and going to the gym.

Fun Fact: In March 2019, I taught for a week in Belize. I taught in a preschool classroom for 2 days and a third-grade classroom for 2 days. On the days I was not teaching I got to explore Belize by snorkeling with sting rays, hiking the Mayan Ruins, and ziplining through the rainforest. Highly recommend adding Belize to your travel list!
