What do you do at the County?

I’m responsible for recruitment and training of volunteer poll workers and other election support services for the County’s Registrar of Voters. As the manager of volunteer poll workers, my primary responsibility is to ensure that our polling places are sufficiently staffed on Election Day.

What do you like most about your job?

I recruit poll workers that can cover an array of languages including Filipino, Spanish, Chinese, Vietnamese, Khmer, Korean, Hindi and Japanese, helping voters who may not have sufficient understanding of English feel comfortable and informed by voting in their primary language. Together we provide an important and valuable community service.

It's also great seeing high school and college students get involved in civic engagement and democracy at a young age by volunteering to work the polls.

What does Live Well San Diego mean to you?

Live Well San Diego is meaningful to me for the positive effects achieved from a healthy diet and physical activity. The County offers many opportunities for employees to get involved and stay healthy including the farmers market with local fruits and vegetables, gym access, Thrive Across America to get fit and stay fit, lunch and learn classes and even a team challenge with the Amazing Race.
