About Serena Yee

What brought you to work at Presidio? 

I’ve always been interested in the Healthcare Industry. As a recent graduate looking to get work experience, Presidio grabbed my attention with their focus on healthcare insurance – a different perspective of the industry that I was very eager to learn about.

What’s the most fun thing about your position so far?

I love coming into work every day knowing that I’ll be doing something different and learning something new. It’s fun being part of such a wonderful team at Presidio, being able to help our clients, working on new projects, and constantly learning.

Do you have any hobbies that occupy your time outside of work?

Growing up I’ve spent a lot of my time in athletics, doing gymnastics for 10 years then springboard diving for 8 years, as well as diving for UC Davis. Other than that, I enjoy exploring outdoors, hiking, hanging out with family and friends, relaxing and watching movies. I LOVE horseback riding, one of my life goals is to own a horse and go horseback riding on the beach with my (future) English and German Shepard running by my side.

If you could have a Starbucks drink named after you, what would be in it?

I love coffee ice cream. So if we could make that into a blended sundae, topped with whipped cream and brownie bites that sounds perfect to me.

What’s the most important lesson you’ve learned in life?

We all go through rough times, everyone and anyone you meet will be going through their own challenge in life – being kind and keeping a positive attitude will better yourself and those who surround you. As Gandalf explains to those who wish hardships did not come to them, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”
