I work at HH because a core value of mine is to be able to show up as a whole person in the marketplace. HH is a place that celebrates and encourages associates to bring not just their skills and expertise, but their ideas, thoughts and feelings. It’s very unique.
Angela is based in our Long Beach office; her responsibilities include overseeing the administrative aspects of her clients’ accounts, collaborating with team members, serving as liaison with custodians, and mentoring and training new employees. Angela’s favorite part of her job is facilitating the Discovery Process, HH’s innovative approach to interviewing prospective clients. “Though I understand the science behind the why, I am still amazed at how much we can learn about people in a relatively short, but meaningful, meeting,” she says. “When these people become clients there’s a strong relationship from the get-go because we know so much about them.”
When Angela joined HH in 2013, she began as an executive assistant to Managing Director Craig Cross, but proved to be such an asset that her position gradually evolved into client service work. Earlier in her career, Angela ran midweek and weekend children’s programs (one which she founded) at two local non-profit organizations, training and overseeing volunteers and writing the curriculum. Her first job out of college was at a local newspaper.
Angela attended Biola University, graduating summa cum laude in 2000 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English.
During her free time Angela enjoys visiting arts and cultural sites in the LA area. One favorite? The Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens. She describes it as “better than Disneyland—young and old roam around one of the most varied and beautiful spaces in the region.” She enjoys spreading a blanket on one of the vast lawns and reading, writing, and making space for creativity and quiet.
I’ve only back-packed once in my life, when I was just out of high school. I completed the John Muir Trail—211 miles through some of the California’s most stunning national parks like Yosemite, Kings Canyon, and Sequoia. I did it over a one-month span with family friends I’ve known my whole life. While I’ve never back-packed again, I’m an avid hiker and love to be near tall trees in complete silence.
