What do you like most about your job?

The customer service I can provide when potential renters come into the building for information or contact me by phone or email. Hearing about what sort of event they are having, helping them decide on the best room location for what they want, and going through the entire process with them.

What is your favorite Sierra 2/ SCNA event?

Curtis Fest. Love seeing all the great art that people display.

What is your favorite space at Sierra 2 Center?

Personally the Curtis Hall Courtyard. When the weather allows, you will find me eating my lunch on one of the benches under the pergola.

What is your hobby?

I love to garden and eat what we plant. Big fan of the local farmers markets. I dabble in succulents and have some great arrangements around the house. Love my roses too. I have various art projects that I work on, to include bead lamp shades, bead dangles and restoring old furniture when time permits. Currently obtaining my certification in aromatherapy from the Aromahead Institute.

Stacy is our One-Time and Casual Renter Booking Specialist.  She helps around the office in various capacities and coordinates the Angel Tree every year.  She joined us in April 2019.

What do you like most about your job?

I was attracted to working at Sierra 2 because it reminded me of the San Francisco YMCA, where I worked for eight years as the Youth & Family Director. I enjoy working with the community and with non-profits so, this seemed like a perfect fit. There’s a true sense of community here between the center and the surrounding neighborhoods.

I also like that we’re given the opportunity to touch people’s lives in very personal ways. Just as many renters have, I myself have hosted my own events such as a family reunion, baby and bridal showers, farewell parties and even my father’s Celebration of Life here. Through the years I’ve made many lasting friendships among SCNA members, our clientele, tenants and my co-workers. I’ve seen a lot of changes to the Center over the years that I’m proud to be a part of.

What is your favorite Sierra 2/ SCNA event?

Home Tour because it was one my Mom and I enjoyed together. And the Wine Tasting event is always a fun day…great food, beverages and lots of happy people!

What is your favorite space at Sierra 2 Center?

Obviously, I love our theater! I also love the Garden Room and its attached courtyard. I enjoy taking lunch breaks in the courtyard with the birds and squirrels as company. I agree wholeheartedly with clients who, when they visit for the first time, say that the entire facility has a “special energy and a good feeling about it!”

What is your hobby?

I enjoy geanealogy. Several trips to Salt Lake City’s Family History Library, online research and many visits to archival libraries and I’ve traced some of my family lines as far back as the 800’s! It’s been fun learning the history of my family, the world and about my famous and infamous relatives. It’s a never ending hobby as new branches of the tree open up continually. I’ve also met and made friends with many new cousins thru our mutual research.

I love cooking and trying new dishes from around the world. It’s even more fun creating my own recipes!

Valerie, our Facility Administrator, manages the rentals of the Theater and the monthly on-going classes and meetings in the studios and activity rooms. She writes and updates the Viewpoint newspaper pages for Activities, Theater, and What’s New at Sierra 2. Valerie started as an Office Administrator in June 2004 but has held numerous titles at Sierra 2 such as Assistant Director, interim Executive Director, Program and Senior Coordinators and Operations Manager.

What do you like most about your job?

Bringing people together and building community through arts and activities. I love to write grants to create art and nature around the center like the Kaleidoscope sculpture in the Curtis Hall courtyard by Dan Tran and the Native Plant Garden at the front entrance.

What is your favorite Sierra 2/ SCNA event?

Curtis Fest all the way. I love working with artists and spending the day in the park.

What is your favorite space at Sierra 2 Center?

I like the hallways. I like to pass people and peek into the rooms to see what’s going on.

What is your hobby?

I like to make art and take on home improvement projects. I love to travel and camp.

Heather is our Marketing & Outreach Coordinator. She runs the website, social media, and email newsletters. She also creates most of the printed posters and event marketing materials.
