Someone has to keep track of all those $5 payments… Well, that and manage all of our accounting, finance, taxes, leases, and more. I’m sooo happy to have the last of these items off my plate! Welcome, Cecilia!
What attracted you to Backblaze?
Every time I met up with Brian for lunch, he always seemed so happy at his job. I wanted to be that happy at my job. Now I am.
Did you always meticulously backup data?
I have always planned to backup data, does that count? Now that I am at Backblaze, I really should.
Where are you originally from? Why did you move here?
I was born and raised in Manila, Philippines. Came to the US after I graduated from college as part of my parents immigration application. I told my mom that I’m giving the US a 3-month trial period and if I didn’t like it, I am going back home. Well… 20 some years later, I’m still here.
Favorite place you’ve traveled?
I always love going home to the Philippines. Aside from the Philippines, I would keep going back to Europe. We have been to France, Switzerland, Germany, and Italy. There are still so many places to visit. UK, Spain, Ireland, Belgium, Netherlands, Greece—those are the top places I would love to see next.
I love to read, listen to music, workout, hike, and ride the bike (although I must say bikes don’t like me too much).
Of what achievement are you most proud?
My family—I have been married to my wonderful husband for almost 23 years, and we have two beautiful and amazing daughters, 21 and 17.
My favorite expression is:
Lord love a duck!
Please welcome her onboard!
