What I love most about my job at Teledyne?​

I enjoy the continuous learning and challenge in an environment where trust and high ethics abound.

Where do you get your motivation from and where did you grow up?

My parents instilled the importance of education and hard work starting at the point that each of their 9 children entered school. I lost my father when I was 10; however, I have followed his simple words all my life: “always do more than what was asked, never stop learning, and have trust in yourself.” The loss of my father at early age had a profound effect on my life and desire to excel. I wanted to be able to take care of myself, but also provide for others who may not be as fortunate. ​​
