Yesenia Noriega has been working for the City and serving the Grover Beach community for 26 years. She has made herself invaluable over the years, having "worn many hats" during her time with the City. This has included Front Desk, Utility Billing, Business Tax Certificates and Payroll roles.
Yesenia is a long-time resident of San Luis Obispo County, having been born, raised and currently residing in Santa Maria. Her father and mother both came to California looking for the American Dream and were sharecroppers with the Santa Maria Berry Farms for 30 years. Yesenia says she learned the true meaning and value of hard work by spending her summers with her siblings and parents picking strawberries.
Yesenia is happily married with two children - Ethan is 10 years old and Isaiah is 18 years old and graduating from high school this year. During her free time, Yesenia loves spending time with her family and, of course, shopping!
While Yesenia looks forward to learning and expanding the possibilities within the Administrative Services Department before she retires, she plans to continue serving the community for many more years before that time comes.
