Hedieh is the Facilities Manager at GEC and has been a part of the team for 5 years. She is currently working towards her facility management administrator designation.
“As the Facilities Manager, I oversee all building-related activities. I am responsible for maintaining the condition of our infrastructure and ensuring that our facilities are safe and well-functioning for all GEC residents.
Working at GEC has taught me so much about what goes into operations and maintenance. The staff members are what make GEC an enjoyable place to work and I am grateful to learn from such a supportive team.
In my spare time, I like to go hiking in the back country, riding my bike, being a beach bum, and anything else that is outdoors.”
