Job title: Administrative Assistant for the Association for Supportive Child Care, 16 years.

The association is a private, nonprofit organization “dedicated to improving the quality of child care in Arizona.”


High school degree, including business courses; Realtor license.

What are your main duties?

“My position entails many duties, some on a daily basis, others when the occasion arises. I maintain records for our Child and Adult Food Program, order home inspections and process monthly reports and help with a yearly budget. I answer incoming telephone calls and greet visitors. I process and distribute mail daily including the receipt and deposit of incoming checks. I order, organize and maintain agency office supplies and personal files. I schedule meetings and make many travel arrangements. I attend and participate in monthly management and staff meetings and act on behalf of the Executive Director in her absence. At times, I feel like Dex from the TV commercials.”

What do you like best?

“The best thing I like about my job is the opportunity to work with such nice people and the mission ASCC works toward. I know that we provide the community a great service and it feels good when providers and parents are enthusiastic about how much we have helped them.
