Get to know Keisha Sanker, our Clerk Typist III with the Department of Park, Recreation and Marine. She works out of Beach Maintenance and is currently overseeing the clerical operations for both the Beach and Marine Maintenance Divisions.  
 
Her career with the City started as an Apple One temporary employee in 2016. Within the first few months we quickly recognized her value, work ethic, knowledge and ability to adapt to the job at hand. So, we jumped at the opportunity to hire Keisha before risking any competitive offers taking her away from us. Prior to working for the City, Keisha spent 20 years working with Dunn Edwards Paint Company. Keisha is currently attending Long Beach City College, working towards a degree in Public Administration, and will be transferring to Cal State University in the coming year. 
 
Kindness, sincerity and excellent customer service are the values Keisha brings to work with her every day. She is often the first person our guests and patrons will speak with, whether in person, by phone or email. She manages our GoLB platform and our Cityworks service management systems. Keisha quickly identifies core issues and concerns when dealing with the public and always goes above and beyond to accommodate customer needs.  
 
Keisha enjoys spending her free time with her family, riding bikes throughout Long Beach with her husband, going to the gym for a good workout, hot yoga to decompress, shopping… and she is looking forward to traveling in the near future. She is focused on finishing her education and we look forward to seeing her advance within our Department. 
 
Please join us in thanking Keisha for supporting two Divisions and her sincere approach towards serving the public.
