"Job turns into opportunity"
I moved to the Ventura area about two and a half years ago and it was my first time living away from my family. I moved here to plan my wedding and start a family. I stumbled across a job opening in the School of Business and was given the job. I have been in the same office for about two years now and have built very valuable relationships with everyone in the office. I never had much experience working with international students and am really enjoying learning so many different things about other countries. It is really funny to think that I almost didn't make it past my first day because as my boss introduced me to people, I had everyone jokingly offering me their condolences. It is safe to say that I was a bit nervous on my second day but now I can't imagine having had another first job here.
I enjoy the work I do, I love coming to work and I appreciate seeing familiar faces of my colleagues on campus.
Today, 37 years later, I still remember my arrival and do not regret it.
I wanted to give back to my Lutheran heritage so I started teaching at CLU and this has been a perfect fit for me.
Working at CLU has transformed my life for the better in so many ways.
