Describe the work you do at the Credit Union. Do you enjoy what you do?
I work in the Human Resources department as an HR Associate. I work on numerous reports, help with our onboarding process, and assist our team members with any questions they may have regarding their timesheets, benefits, 401k, etc. I also get the opportunity to work closely with our Marketing department to plan out internal events and celebrations.
I absolutely love what I do here because I get the opportunity to interact and help all of our departments and team members. Being in HR, you learn to wear many hats and learn that not every day is the same, which is one of the best parts. It keeps you on your feet and you continuously learn new things.
How did you come to be an SCE FCU team member? What’s your background experience?
I was referred to SCE FCU by my aunt, who also works here. I started with the Credit Union in our Account Administration department and was then promoted into Human Resources.
Before joining the SCE FCU team, I was working at the Vons corporate office employee association for four years. We provided various discount programs, theme park tickets, movie tickets, as well as hosted multiple events at theme parks and sport events. We also had a financial hardship program for employees that needed a little extra help.
How do you spend your free time? Are you married? Do you have kids, pets, hobbies, life goals, etc.?
My boyfriend and I have been together for 7 years. We have two dogs, Shelby and Chiquita. We love to go to concerts, sports events, hike, and spend time with our families. A life goal of mine is to be able to travel! I would love to visit other countries and go on a multi-state road trip to explore the outdoors.
Do you have an advice or words of wisdom/inspiration you’d like to share?
There’s a favorite song of mine that has the lyric “No such thing as a life that’s better than yours…”, and it’s basically talking about learning to “Love Yours”. Love what you have in life and don’t compare yourself to others and what they have, to what you have. Because you never know what that person may truly be feeling or going through. Sometimes the cover says a different story than what’s on the inside.
