(SAN BERNARDINO, Calif.) Shannan Gonzales started at Dameron Communications in January 2009 as an extern while attending United Education Institute (UEI). After the completion of her extern, she was hired as public relations coordinator at Dameron Communications.
“Shannan is the hub of our office,” said Carl Dameron, owner and creative director of Dameron Communications. “She works with clients and the team to make sure projects get done on time.”
Her duties include maintaining client and company press books, updating the Master Contacts database with more than 92,000 contacts, clerical work, paying company bills and analyzing the value of press received.
“I enjoy the positive and friendly office environment and the opportunity to assist others,” said Gonzales.
After hours she returns to her most important life calling, being a mother to her 2-year-old son Marcos. Everyday she enjoys the blessings her son brings, from a simple smile to a goodbye hug when dropping him off at preschool.
“Marcos is my top priority,” said Gonzales. “His birth motivated me to focus on my professional career and set a good example for my son.”
Gonzales is a graduate of UEI with a degree in Business Administration. After graduating from Redlands East Valley High School in 2002, she began working for Office Depot as a copy center representative for three years. She also worked for Stater Bros Market as a courtesy clerk, replenished inventory and as a deli representative.
“My prior experience working at Stater Bros and Office Depot helped guide me to the career choice of business administration, for I quickly learned that I have a deep passion for assisting others,” said Gonzales “And I am now able to do this with our clients on a daily basis.”
