How long have you been with Network Automation?
A little over a year now! How time flies...

Title?
Receptionist

What's the best part of your job?
The best part of my job is getting to organize our company gatherings and special occasions.

What's your biggest challenge?
My biggest challenge is interacting with different personalities and different departments while trying to communicate effectively. Another challenge is dealing with Telemarketers. They can be tough.

Do you use AutoMate? If so what do you use it for?
Of course! I use it to keep track of usernames and passwords for websites and different applications I work with. It's great! It saves me at least an hour per day.

Hometown?
Los Angeles, CA.

What's something your coworkers don't know about you?
They don't know that I study French! Et j'ai aussi la peur du vide!

On the weekends we can find you...
Shopping!

 

Favorite summertime activity?
I love going to baseball games, Go Dodgers!

Dodgers

Starbuck's order?
Well it depends on the day! Ice Coffee, Cinnamon Dolce Late or a Green Tea Lemonade is my usual.

If you could have lunch with someone dead or living who would it be and why?
I would have to say Angelina Jolie. Her life seems very interesting to me, not only has she done modeling and acting but she is also a Goodwill Ambassador who is recognized for her humanitarian efforts. Angelina seems like a strong woman who loves to help people in need. I really admire her for that. And, let's not forget she's considered one of the most beautiful women in the world who dates Brad Pitt!

Johnny Depp or Johnny Knoxville
Well, Johnny Depp is interesting and Johnny Knoxville is funny. I would have to go with Johnny Depp!

Rio

If you could have one day in paradise where would you go and what would you do?
I would go to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and spend my day at the Copacabana Beach relaxing. The Christ Redeemer Statue would be on my must-see list. And of course I would shop and take zillions of pictures.

 

If you were an animal which would you be?
I would be a Lion, "King of the Jungle!"

What's the best thing about working for Network Automation?
How tranquil the environment is. I can come in do my work, chat with my coworkers and have some fun with my boss, not bad!

When I retire I will....
Be volunteering my time for a good cause.
