California JPIA Welcomes New Staff
With the goal of providing exemplary and substantive service to its members, the California JPIA continues to strategically advance the structure and number of its dedicated staff to anticipate extended needs. In March 2022, the Authority increased its dynamic team with the addition of two new professionals: Administrative Assistant Jennifer Torres and Training Assistant Kanisha Adams, who join the California JPIA to support members and assist in the development of fundamental Authority services.
“Our services consistently improve with the addition of each new, dedicated staff member,” said Administrative Services Director Nikki Salas. “Authority staff members are most successful when they receive support from within the organization and are able to rely on their fellow teammates.”
As the Authority’s newest administrative assistant, Torres will provide support for human resources, finance, the Board of Directors, and fellow administrative staff members. She joins the team with over 20 years of experience in administrative duties at ADP, an industry-leading payroll and human resource solution.
“I am so excited to dive into my responsibilities at the California JPIA and provide support to our wonderful team,” said Torres. “The team already has welcomed me with open arms. I look forward to contributing to their efforts and assisting our members.”
With 18 years of experience in workers’ compensation and customer service, Kanisha Adams joins the Authority staff as a training assistant. According to Salas, Adams’ extensive knowledge and understanding of workers’ compensation claims will greatly benefit training staff as they develop and deliver comprehensive training and materials to members.
“The California JPIA has long recognized the important role training plays in risk management,” said Adams, who will support the training division by providing help with training initiatives and onsite member support for training. “I am excited to have joined the training team and look forward to fulfilling our crucial role to help our members.”
