#PrintHERStory Month

Tell me about yourself:

Hola, My name is Rocio Perez-Vera. I’m a Mexican women that comes from a large family.

In my free time, I  like going out with my family to different restaurants to try Mexican food (shrimp tacos) or different styles of food here in Minnesota or other states.

How did you get involved in print?

I started to work at Bolger Inc., almost 10 years ago because my mother was working here in the afternoon shift. At that time the company was really busy and looking for help in assembling. This is how I got started, by helping when they need seasonal workers, then I got really interested in the field. I got excited how the work was done. New projects coming daily with different deadlines.

What advice would you share for young women considering or starting a career in print?

I would tell young women that, they will learn different skills in different kinds/lines of work at each project.

There are many departments they can advance into (Production; Assembly; Mailing; Sales; Supervisor and much more).

How have mentors helped your personal and career development?

All my mentors (coworkers and supervisors) were fundamental to get knowledge and skills needed in production in Assembly and Mailing Department. Getting their help I could work in such a great company as Bolger.

What is your favorite part of the print industry?

My favorite part is working in production and assemble field. Mailing is where I learn something new everyday.

W here do you see yourself in 5 years within your printing career?

I would like to see myself in charge of a machine as an operator, maybe in charge of some department in the course of 5 years.

W here do you see yourself in 5 years within your printing career?

Each year, we do a big project for an insurance company. We print their open enrollment packets for them.

I like it, because it is detailed, in the pieces and their components. Each time there is a different design, new details, new books, or new instructions that must be done.
