In his own words:

 

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN WITH BMP AND WHAT WAS YOUR ROLE WHEN YOU FIRST STARTED? I started BMP in 2008 as an HR Generalist.

 

BRIEF SUMMARY OF EXPERIENCE PRIOR TO BMP: I worked in retail while pursuing my degree, which gave me exposure to customer service and taking care of people. Once I graduated, I decided that helping people was something I liked to do, so I got a job at a non-profit helping amazing people with physical and mental disabilities gain their independence. I conducted money management and resume writing classes to help students balance their budgets and get their foot through the door towards employment and one step closer to independence.

 

COLLEGE/DEGREE(S): California State University, Los Angeles - Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology. Graduate coursework in Business Administration.

 

FUN FACT ABOUT YOU: I’m a First-Generation College Graduate of immigrants who worked hard to give me an opportunity to succeed. Married to my wonderful husband, Levon, a Registered Nurse.
