Christine Returns Home

02/20/2018

Regis is excited to announce its newest Project Manager, Christine Gutierrez. We are also excited to welcome back one of our favorite employees, Christine Gutierrez.
 
Christine was born and raised in Guam. She earned her bachelor’s degree in biology from the University of Guam and moved to California in 2004 to explore further education. While there, she met her future husband and father of her two sons. He was from Chicago and on a trip early on in their relationship she visited and fell in love with his and Regis’ hometown. The Midwestern friendliness reminded her of Guam’s culture. It felt like home, and so they moved here in 2006. 
 
In 2008, she joined Regis and became our Quality Control Services Manager. After eight years, she moved on to expand her management skills. She was an asset we were sad to lose.
 
At her new position, she grew her lab management skills, but she found herself missing the customer service responsibilities. In her Regis position, she interacted with customers regularly. That interaction provided a reason behind the work. Working for and with a customer towards a goal fueled motivation and gratification. 
 
Realizing this, she returned to school to pursue her Masters in Business Administration. She expects to graduate from Elmhurst College with a focus in project management this summer. 
 
As Regis expands, we have grown our Project Management team. These are the liaisons between our customers and technical team; they manage both sides of a project to stay on time and in budget. When Christine saw a job posting online, she reached out to one of her former coworkers, a current Project Manager, to discuss the fit. Then, she contacted the team’s director. It was a perfect match, and she officially rejoined on February 14th.  
 
Christine is so glad to be back and says it feels like she never left the Regis family. We feel the same way.
 
We are also so happy for her that she was able to return home to her family in Guam this past Christmas. Christine’s parents and most of her siblings still live on the island. Her last trip home was two years ago, but she has not been home for Christmas since she lived there 14 years ago. She was able to bring her younger son with and share with him the cultural differences of the holiday there. Together, they enjoyed a buffet of Chamorro food, a night market where he was able to hold a coconut crab and take a carabao ride (akin to our pony rides), and a warm Christmas!
