10-second bio: Cindy Pukatch

Name: Cindy Pukatch

Title: Human Resources Analyst

Department/unit: Local UCOP Human Resources

Location: Sixth floor, Franklin

When I started working at UCOP: June 6, 2011

What I do for OP in five words or less: Local HR projects implementation

The best part about working for OP: Many opportunities to learn from experienced coworkers

Something you don’t know about me: I’m an Oakland Zoo docent and vice president of their Docent Council. I’ve been a docent since 2007 and volunteer 10 to 12 hours each month. I’ve handled boas, ferrets, hedgehogs, tortoises, rabbits, skinks and bearded dragons. We are always looking for new volunteers for both the Docent and Animal Management Programs. Schedules are flexible, you get lots of free training before starting an assignment, and the work is so gratifying! Anyone who is interested can get more details on the Oakland Zoo website.

One weird fact about the town I grew up in: St. Louis, Missouri, is home to the oldest institution of higher learning west of the Mississippi – Saint Louis University.

If I could have any job in the world (besides the one I have now), I would: Work in the health care field as a medical technologist.

    What a great photo! Not too many giraffes sighted around here. Really enjoyed the bio, too.

    My you’re quite tall, Cindy! 🙂 Any chance that UCOP employees can be granted “behind the scenes” passes to learn about the animals & zoo operations more in depth? I don’t mean to put you on the spot, but thought others might relish an opportunity to go “backstage,” if you will. I, for one, would love to!
