June Employee of the Month
Vangie grew up in the Philippines with three brothers and three sisters. She met her husband, Joseph, in the Philippines. They married in November, 1982. They have 4 kids, Carla, Paolo, Karen, and Jeremy. All of the kids have worked here at one time or another. Jeremy still works at the Villas. But back up. Where did this gem come from?
Vangie came to the United States in 2002 with her husband and four children. Her mom is anAmerican citizen who had moved to the US in 1972. She’s the one that petitioned for Vangie and her family to come here. Vangie had learned English in her school in the Philippines. She said, “We were not allowed to talk Tagalog (pronounced Tuh-GAL-log) in our school, we had to talk English, or we would be fined.” Her country wanted all the students to learn fluent English because English is the second language in the Philippines. Vangie says the United States helps the Philippines in a lot of ways, especially when it comes to military assistance. The US is like family to the Filipinos. Once in the US, Vangie and her family lived in Mission Viejo with her mom. She didn’t work right away, but her husband and eldest daughter did. In about a year, in 2003, she applied at the Villas for food server, and they hired her right away part time.
After about two months she was offered a full-time job. After six months she was made dining room supervisor! Vangie says everyone at the Villas is like her family. So what does this girl do in her spare time? As most people know, Vangie loves to sing. But she also loves to dance. And she’s a happy person. So now, Vangie, tell us something we don’t know. Well, here it is – she said, “I want to be a good dancer, like someone who could go on Dancing with the Stars. I’d love to go to dancing school!” You go girl! Oh! But not too far, we need you here!!! Congratulations to Vangie, our June 2017 Employee of the Month!
