Justina started her career at Recology in 2007 as a Customer Service Representative for Recology Vacaville Solano. Four years later, she moved into the Finance/Accounts Payable Department, and in 2014 she transitioned into the Safety Department as Safety Coordinator. A few years later, she became Safety Specialist and then Group Safety Manager. Today, she serves as Operations Manager for Recology Davis.
Through her various positions, Justina has gained extensive experience in collection and processing operations, providing the skills needed to understand how the company functions on a financial level. Working in a variety of departments has not only helped Justina understand her value, but has given her the opportunity to meet and work with so many talented leaders. Over the last 12 years, she has seen more women come into leadership roles, and says they have inspired her to aim high and have a voice.
Prior to Recology, she spent about 15 years in the restaurant industry worked as an executive assistant. She was on her way to getting a BA in criminal justice at Sacramento State when they started cutting classes due to budget. She stopped classes to work at Recology temporarily, but soon felt invested in the company and the people. Since then, Justina was able to go back to school and earned her BA and MA in Business Administration.
