Ixia has worked at Mercedes-Benz of Walnut Creek, where she was promoted from Receptionist to People & Culture. She organized employee events and new hire orientations in that position and assisted with onboarding. In addition, she conducted interviews, reviewed resumes, and provided administrative support to the Internet Sales Manager and the GM of the store. She is fully bilingual and currently working at completing additional studies at Berkeley City College. She was named after a flower, which is fitting since she has grown into an avid gardener within the last couple of years. She enjoys making floral arrangements and growing fresh herbs for daily cooking. She spends time running with her dogs, roller skating and playing in the Bay Area Adult Soccer League on Friday nights. Her dogs Charlie and Luna are her trusty adventure buddies, and accompany her to the park, river trips, and hikes throughout the East Bay.
