From the Desk of Mary Schuler

As the TimeSlips community continues to grow, we’re introducing you to each of our team members and highlighting the work that benefits YOUR creative engagement.

It’s our joy to get to know you, and for you to get to know us!

What’s your role at TimeSlips and how long have you been with them?
I am the Operations and Project Manager for TimeSlips. I have been with them for almost 2 years. 

What is one project you’ve been working lately that benefits TimeSlips’ community?
The biggest project I have been working on at TimeSlips is the web update project, which gives the TimeSlips community more customized information and catered training sessions. This project entailed a variety of components, including changing the web platform to WordPress from a custom-built system, which was difficult to use. We also migrated all our data to a new Customer Relations Management (CRM) system called Salesforce and integrated it with our website. The new system helps TimeSlips to customize updates to our site based on what members are requesting/needing in the field, and reporting, all features we may need to run for our membership.

What would be your perfect day off?
My perfect day off would be to drive to San Diego with my 2 children and husband and spend the day at the beach. It is where my husband and I went to graduate school and we loved living near the beaches of La Jolla. If we could eat ramen and Korean tofu stew in Convoy and relax at La Jolla Shores Hotel with our friends and family, it would be an absolutely ideal day.

What’s one thing people might not know about you? 
I was born in Brazil after my parents moved there from Japan for my father’s work. We moved to Los Angeles when I was four and until kindergarten, I only spoke Japanese.
