Coordinator Assistant

"I've worked for OPERS in UCSC for almost three years. I had a great teamwork and a welcoming environment. This was very important because it brings trust in the team. When ideas came to mind I would discuss them with my boss. I had the opportunity to go beyond and help others in need. I was able to train others, help more in the facility, and educated and well inform the clients.
