Staff Spotlight: Barbara Garcia
Featured in the Summer 2010 issue of Strictly Business magazine:
Barbara Garcia is the Administrative Assistant for the faculty of the Eberhardt School of Business. She has been in this role for almost 23 years! She came to the University in 1987 and has been serving the faculty of the School (and rooting for the Pacific Men's & Women's Basketball teams) ever since. Barbara is responsible for assisting the 27 faculty of the school with course logistics and records, copies and schedules, office supplies and mail room management. The faculty and staff of the school depend on her organization, responsiveness, and professionalism, and appreciate her kind nature and composure. When asked about what keeps her here and what she likes best about her job, her confident response is "the people." She says
"[The Eberhardt School] is the best place to work - everyone truly enjoys working with each other." When asked about her most memorable time as a Pacific employee, she said "during the first few years that I worked here at ESB, my husband was a barber at the Pacific Campus Barber Shop - I always enjoyed hearing the campus ‘news' that he learned from his many clients." Barbara and her husband Avey have been married for 47 years and they have two children, three grandchildren, and a black lab. In their free time they enjoy concerts in the park and spending time at their second home in the foothills. Barbara is a beloved member of the Eberhardt team - we are lucky to have her!
