Tell us a bit about yourself: I am 40 years old. I am a single mother of two boys, 16 and 10. I love animals, and I am a people person. I am always smiling even when I feel blue. I have eight cats, two dogs, a hamster, and a turtle. I love to help others. I am very thankful to God because he has blessed me with the best people around me, at home and work, with lovely sons and a wonderful job.
What’s your favorite memory/story about a customer? My favorite story about a customer is when an autistic boy toured our building and saw the trucks. The smile on his face was one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. I have to say I ended up with tears of joy.
How do you help the environment in your role? I encourage customers to recycle as much as they can by making sure everything recyclable is put inside the right container.
What do you like to do for fun in your downtime? I like to take my boys to the beach and to visit my father in Mexico. I enjoy playing with my cats and taking my dogs around the block. I also love to sit down at the end of the day and watch a good movie or show with my sons, cats, and dogs all sitting next to me.
What are your goals for the future?
I want to grow as much as I can at Athens and hope to work for many years until I’m old and can’t work anymore. Another one of my goals is to send my boys to college to pursue the careers of their dreams.
