Meet Joel G., Operations Administrative Coordinator

In this series of "Day in the Life of ____", we will be highlighting the various professions Opportunity Village has to offer. This feature is focused on the role of Operations Administrative Coordinator

What led you to OV/your current position? 

Tons of patience, communication, and adaptability led me to my current position as Operations Administrative Coordinator. With these key skills, I have been able to grow and improve every year. 

What does a typical day look like for you?

 A general overview of a day would start with the moment I walk. Checking in with the teammates, making sure tasks do not need my immediate attention, and making sure all is set. Occasionally checking emails! I do a lot of relaying of info between teammates. Afterward, I generally stick with a teammate that the team would benefit from by having me work on tasks related with that teammate. If not, I would be laying lots of cabling/setting up electronics/building items for the forest’s setups.


What is the most exciting part of your job?

Working with a great team that appreciates what I do for them and the company is what helps me come back every day.

Who inspires you? 

Yanique and Kale both inspire me, they have lots of dedication and focus to doing their best and despite the enormous amounts of obstacles, and they are given. I try to follow that and do my best as well.

What is your favorite thing to do when you're not working? 

When not working, which is rare, sleeping and resting. When I can get rest AND have extra time to do things, I enjoy music (I love to compose), Animal Crossing and putting my island together is another favorite thing. If not those, Super Smash Bros and doing some tournaments whenever I get the time to. Hiking and lifting weights is another thing I love to do whenever I get a chance.
