Why did you choose to work at CARPLS?
I chose to work at CARPLS because it was a non-profit organization that has been in business for 29 years and has helped many people. After reading the job description for the position, I said to myself this job description fits me very well and I’m going to apply!
What motivates and inspires you to do the work that you do?
What motivates me is getting to meet diverse people from various backgrounds and experience different situations.
How did you get into office administration?
I got into office administration from my skillset and experience throughout my career working for several corporate and non-profit organizations.
What interest you about legal aid?
What interest me about legal aid is the work they do for people in need and the community!
What do you do in your free time?
In my free time, I’m always spending time with my mom who will be 93 years old in July. If I’m not spending time with mom, I’m spending time with my husband, kids, granddaughter and family/friends.
In my free time, I also enjoy going to the gym, gardening, cooking, watching tv, and playing games.
If you could have dinner with three famous people throughout history who would they be and why?
- Martin Luther King, Jr., because of his passion to take on the civil rights no matter what the cost would be. In his case, the price was his life.
- Rosalind Russell, reason being is that we share the same first name with the same exact spelling.
- President Barack Obama, to ask questions about how he truly felt that night he became president of the United States. I would want to hear from his own voice about assuming responsibility of leading the free of the world as the first African American to do so.
