After checking all my voicemails and emails in the morning, I receive orders for the campus and communicate with Accounts Payable, assist with walk-in shredding customers, set-up shredding contracts. (Among other administrative tasks).

What is the most exciting part of your job?

The most exciting part of my job is working with the people at OV! I love getting to know them and hearing about their days.

Who inspires you?

My dad. He came to the United States and had to learn English as a teenager & made sure me and my sister had everything we wanted and needed while growing up & my older sister, Sylvia. She’s one of the sweetest, kindest, hardest working people I know and inspires me to be the best version of myself every day.

I enjoy hiking, working out, cooking, watching documentaries, getting my nails done, and hanging out with my sisters/best friends!
