Describe a little of your past history.
I graduated from UTA with a bachelors in anthropology with a focus on cultural and social anthropology. The skills I learned while studying anthropology have taught me how to connect with people and how to approach situations differently. I’ve been working in the customer service field since 2010. I’ve learned how to interact with customers and how to multitask, both being skills that are extremely important in my position.
Describe some of your hobbies – what do you like to do outside of work?
I do triathlons, so I spend a lot of my free time training. I have a goal to complete my first 70.3 by the end of 2018. Maybe a 140.6 one day? I’m also a member of Team in Training and try to fundraise once a year for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society while training for an endurance event. I enjoy trying new recipes and spending time with my family and friends.
What are some key lessons you have taken from your career thus far?
I’ve learned that if you are facing problems or issues at work its best to just face those problems head on and not fear the challenge.
What is one thing your customers might find surprising about you?
I was born in Mexico and moved to Fort Worth when I was 10 years old. I don’t have an accent, so people are really surprised when they find out I’m from there.
