Senior Resource & Office Coordinator
How long have you been at Lionbridge?
What does a typical work day look like for you?
I start my morning by checking the general condition of the office. I believe that the cleaner and safer the office environment is, the more motivated and productive employees are. The rest of the day is focused on project resources and office planning, and communication with managers and employees.
What is your favorite place in your office?
The kitchen—it’s where I usually have a good laugh with colleagues.
What is the best part of your job?
Being able to help the team in all kinds of situations—be it project coordination/management, resourcing, vendor communication, event organizing, office administration, etc.
Fill in the blanks:
I speak 5.5 languages (list them!)

Isinay (native) – an endangered language in the Philippines
Ilocano (fluent) – one of the languages in the Philippines
And a little of Swedish and Spanish
My favorite local saying is ______, [and it means ______, if not English].
