Senior Instructional Designer, Phoenix, AZ
Republic employee since January 2017
[/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='16' font_color='' color='' av-medium-font-size='' av-small-font-size='' av-mini-font-size='' admin_preview_bg=''] Tell us about your role at Republic.
I am responsible for developing innovative learning solutions for employees. This requires me to apply creativity to each learning to make it engaging and meaningful. I’m proud to work for an organization that cares not only about its employees but also their well-being, career and overall engagement.

How has your heritage shaped your life? Your career?
I was born in Mexico, and, soon after, moved to Tucson, Arizona. I spent my formative years in Salinas, California, and moved to Phoenix, Arizona, in my teens. Growing up, both of my parents instilled in me and my brothers a sense of pride, commitment, hard work and professionalism. I saw those same attributes in my parents—whether it was my mother opening her own salon or my father attaining his Ph.D. in Engineering from the University of Arizona.

I’m extremely proud of my parents for how they’ve lived their lives and encouraged us to live ours to the fullest. And that success is not just about personal accomplishments but also about bettering those around you. My Latino heritage has influenced me personally and professionally by helping me rise above and dispel negative stereotypes. Everything I have done in my life has been to make my parents and family proud.

Tell us about your family. What traditions do you have?
My family gathers together with my parents each weekend to catch up, play games and enjoy each other’s company.  We make great meals, too! My favorite Mexican dish is Pastel Azteca (Aztec Cake), but it is not a dessert. It includes layers of tortillas, chicken, corn, chile, crema and more. And, when we say goodbye, we tell each other in Spanish, “Te quiero más que ayer pero menos que mañana.” Meaning: “I love you more than yesterday but less than tomorrow.”

I work at the North Texas Recycling Center (NTRC) in Fort Worth, Texas and am responsible for running one of our large volume recycling centers.  I have a team of six awesome mechanics and helpers that make it possible to accomplish this task daily.  I enjoy the challenges at my job and appreciate working with the great staff here at the NTRC. My work at Republic Services has helped me build professional as well as personal relationships. I met my best friend, mother of our five children, and grandmother of our two grandbabies here at Republic.

Q.  How has your heritage shaped your life? Your career? 

I grew up in Ferris, Texas and was raised by my grandparents who taught me to work hard and strive for what I want in life and not take the easy way out. My grandparents immigrated from Mexico. They worked very hard to seek not only a better life for themselves but for their family as well. The character my grandparents instilled in me has helped me grow in my career with Republic Services.  I started out throwing trash on the back of a truck, then became a driver, then a supervisor, and now am responsible for helping operate this huge recycling center. If it hadn’t been for that drive my grandparents pushed me to pursue, I’m not sure where I’d be.

Q.  Tell us about your family. What traditions do you have?

We love getting together for family time and cooking some of the wonderful dishes my grandmother taught us to make. Personally, my favorites are my grandmother’s red sauce cheese enchiladas and Guiso (beef tips in spicy sauce) with Mexican rice. We don’t do it as often as we’d like, but when we do get together it’s always fun!
