In this edition of Staff Spotlight, meet two new members of the Project Access family, Cara and Alex, who are holding down the fort at our new San Diego Family Resource Center at Meadowbrook Apartments
Name: Cara Lee. (Actually my married name is "Yoo", but I haven't officially changed my last name yet, so it's legally still "Lee".)
Nickname (if any): I don't think I had a nickname. However, my name in Spanish means "face", and some friends back in high school would call me "You, face!")
What do you do for Project Access: Service Specialist
What are you most looking forward to at your new position?: I am really looking forward to getting to know the community and establishing trusting relationships with residents!
What do you do for yourself? (for fun/hobbies/side business/etc): I love walking/running with my dog, traveling and exploring different food cruises with my husband, and helping my church youth group with praise (music) band.
What is your biggest Pet Peeve? This might sound funny, but one of my biggest pet peeves is when guys are wearing white socks with black shoes, sandals or slippers (AKA "fashion terrorists")
Name: Alex Garcia
Nickname: Copy Machine (when I was a kid, I had the tendency to do my homework in class during the lesson. Since I was done with the homework, my friends would ask to copy, hence the name) Al G. (that’s what my sister has always called me)
What do you do for Project Access: Service Coordinator
What are you most looking forward to at your new position?: Helping everyone I work with to move forward, whether that means learning their multiplication tables, learning to create a document in Microsoft Word, or simply taking some time to learn how to cook a healthy meal for their respective family and friends.
What do you do for yourself? (for fun/hobbies/side business/etc): I play sports. It’s my release. And concerts. I go to many concerts.
What is a surprising fact about yourself?: I’ve run over 16 marathons.
Are you prepared for a zombie apocalypse?: I think so. I’ve run quite a few miles in my day. I am pretty resourceful, so I should be able to do okay.
