As a seasoned Kaiser Permanente employee, I have a history that runs deep within the organization. For 19 years. I am a pharmacy technician at Montebello and a Union Steward. It started in Baldwin Park, California, where I participated in the Kaiser Summer Youth Program while still in high school, embodying the strong work ethic that I was thought and believed in. After high school, I attended the California State University of Long Beach and received my Bachelor’s degree in Theatre Arts in performance acting. After graduation, I submerge myself with healthcare leaders to have a better understanding of the industry, which I decided to further my education and obtain a Masters in Health Administration from the University of Southern California from the Sol Price School of Public Policy.
I have been involved in pharmacy in various locations and had demonstrated an understanding of how the pharmacy world operates. I understand how to budget the pharmacy inventory and family practice clinic orders. As the role model of the pharmacy, management has given me the responsibility to pre-audit the pharmacy and family clinics. I do this by checking to see if the facility is following rules and regulations that follow state laws.
Also, I am a UBT member (unit-based team) as well as a Union Steward for Kaiser in the Baldwin Park area. As a UBT member, my role is to improve care for the department and our members. As a pharmacy tech, I am on the front line inpatient care. I see and hear patients concerns about how to improve their experience at the pharmacy. Also, I am a Union Steward. I work closely with our Union Rep to ensure they demonstrate reliable and ethical practices following union rules and labor laws while working with both management and non-management employees.
