    What do you do at NSA Souda Bay?

    At NSA Souda Bay I am the Program Assistant for Fleet & Family Support Center. In this role I work alongside the Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Victim Advocate where I provide training to our Sailors and base community and assist with scheduling appointments for counseling.

    Why do you feel your work is important to the mission?

    Fleet & Family Support Center is essential for mission readiness to assist and meet the obligations and challenges of our Navy Sailors, families and civilians. Our services help with family readiness that may affect job satisfaction, job performance and personnel retention.

    Why did you want to work at NSA Souda Bay?

    My husband and I moved to Greece when he got a job as a base firefighter. In doing so, I’ve had to put my own career on hold in support of his. When the opportunity arose, however, I wanted to challenge myself by working with a different type of community. Even though I’m not prior military I enjoy helping people, and I wanted to learn about the military lifestyle and assist in helping our active-duty military and their families with my skills.

    When not at work, what are you doing?

    On my off days, I enjoy hanging out with my husband and two dogs. I have a Golden Retriever named Ollie who is obsessed with the ball and all he wants to do is play fetch. I also have a Dalmatian named Halligan, who loves to play tug-o-war. In addition, I enjoy crocheting blankets, outfits and stuffed animals. Lastly, I spend my free time exploring the island and reading books.

    What is something you have enjoyed about living in Greece?

    Something I enjoy about living in Greece is the friendly culture of Crete, the nature and the amazing food the island has to offer. It is my first time living overseas and the people I have met have made me feel welcomed and part of the community.

    What is something you have found interesting about Greece since living here?

    Something I have found surprising about Greece is that their language has some similarities to my Mexican culture. Certain words and pronunciations are alike. Another interesting thing is that on Sundays it is family day and most of the stores are closed to honor that.

    What would you like Team Souda to know about your work?

    I am the first face you will encounter when walking in to Fleet & Family Support Center and I am always willing to help in any way that I can. Everyone is welcomed to come in, we are never the wrong door. We currently a two-team crew, but we try our hardest to ensure every Team Souda member who requires our services receives the best support for mission readiness. We are located on the ground floor of Building 11 and you can also reach us at 314-266-1688. We always have our doors open for you and your family.
