More than 20 years.

How did you get here? What did you do before? ¿Cómo llegaste hasta aquí? ¿Qué hacías antes?

I was in Mexico and was working on dairies there. After I came to the US, one of my friends recommended Straus Family Creamery and they gave me the opportunity. When I started here, I was first working on sanitation, then I switched to the different lines. I started at the glass line, then moved to the plastic, and later became an operator at the butter and ice cream lines. I then became Production Supervisor, Production Manager, Director of Production, and now Production Planning & Administration Manager.
