September 2013 Employee of the Month

Gabby Cruz

Finance Department

For the month of September, the directors have selected GABRIELA CRUZ as the City of Porterville’s employee of the month.  Gabby, as we call her, joined the Finance Team as an Account Clerk I in February of 2007.  She started at the front counter with cash collections, helping our customers in processing their transactions.  She showed excellent customer service, always professional and polite to everybody.  It became quickly apparent that Gabby is one of our more dedicated staff with excellent work habits and a great attitude.

Within a few months time, Gabby was promoted to an Account Clerk II and was assigned to be the chief Accounts Receivable Clerk.  She quickly learned and mastered the Accounts Receivable module and the billing process.  In this position, she was responsible for the collection of several thousand dollars in past-due accounts, balancing the daily cash receipts and preparing the deposits to the bank.  Recently, Gabby was promoted to Payroll Administrative Aide. She is currently learning payroll maintenance, processing and reporting. Gabby continues to be dependable and trustworthy.  She is very conscientious and thorough about her work.  She enjoys learning new things.  She’s always willing to help out wherever we have a need.  With her positive attitude, exemplary work ethic, professionalism, and excellent customer service, Gabby is truly one of our most valued employees.

Gabby is married to Ruben.  They moved to Porterville from the LA area about 11 years ago.  They have 2 children, Ruben Jr. who is 15 and Jasmine who is 8.  Gabby enjoys reading, shopping and surfing the internet.  But most specially, she likes to go to different places with her family.
