Employee Spotlight: Emily Ziser

Hello Emily! Emily Ziser is the Training and Engagement Coordinator for Facilities Management in Operations Support. Her responsibilities include leading staff training and engagement opportunities through events, courses, surveys, and career development programs. She also supports the department-wide marketing and communications efforts. “Basically, I work to keep staff engaged through opportunities for growth and opportunities for fun.” 

Emily was raised in Davis and is a UC Davis alum, earning her bachelor’s degree in Evolutionary Anthropology, before getting her Multiple Subject Teaching Credential from Sacramento State. From sales and marketing to teaching to bartending to HR, Emily has had a diverse professional career! Most of her work boils down to one thing – helping people. “I feel most fulfilled when I’m helping someone out; either in learning new things or in finding the resources they need. It’s a fun challenge!” 

When not at work, Emily is often busy working with her Soroptimist club, going to dinner with friends, listening to live music, or hanging out with her goat and chickens.  

Thank you, Emily for supporting our staff!
