10-Second Bio: Sally J. Gibbons Philbin
Title: Manager-HR Compliance
Department/Unit: Human Resources; HR Compliance
Location: Kaiser Building
When I started working at UCOP: 1985
What I do for OP in five words or less: Help protect University family.
The best part about working for OP: Working for an organization that has allowed me to grow professionally while being associated with some of the best people I have ever met.
Something you don’t know about me: I am a direct descendant of Richard Warren who came over on the Mayflower.
One weird fact about the town I grew up in: I grew up in Manteca, CA. Weird: The town name would have been “Monteca” except that the railroad misspelled it and it stuck. (Manteca means “lard” in Spanish.) Interesting: Patricia Noriko Miranda (born June 11, 1979 in Manteca, CA) is the first American woman in Olympic history to receive a medal in woman’s wrestling at the 2004 Summer Olympic games in Athens, Greece.
If I could have any job in the world (besides the one I have now), I would be: I would like to work full time for non-profit organizations that give back to their communities.
