MARYSVILLE The next time you visit or call The Globe office, a new voice may be the one saying Hello.
The Globe has added two staffers, including new receptionist Jennifer Owen. Eda Teodoro also joined the office team as an administrative assistant.
Owen arrived at The Globe about a month ago after over 30 years with the state. Starting even before she graduated high school, Owen spent much of that time processing employee injury claims. She retired at the young age of 48, then was asked to come back temporarily. Temporarily turned out to mean spending three years as a state safety officer.
Having grown up in Shoreline, Owen now makes her home in Everett with her adopted daughter, Savannah, age five. Owen first took Savannah in as a foster child before adopting her.
She was 10 weeks old when I got her, Owen said, who is now 52 herself. I feel like a grandma sometimes when I go into her classroom.
Along with Savannah, the Owen household also includes another adopted member: Samantha the cat, picked out and named by Savannah.
Teodoro will be assisting Globe office operations in a number of ways, doing everything from some accounting work to answering phones. Previously having worked for a mortgage broker, Teodoro came to The Globe just prior to Christmas.
A native of the Philippines, Teodoro came to this country with her family at the age of 19. Her father eventually started his own business here. Teodoro has been back to visit her native country a few times, though she said not recently.
Now 31, Teodoro is married and lives in Marysville. Teodoro laughed as she gave her husbands name as Nino and her eight-year-old daughters name as Nina.
