Recognition of Project Participants

The CMS Project team would like to welcome Sandra Sobel. Her experience with PeopleSoft is impressive and brings value to the CMS effort. Please take a moment to read more about Sandra and her fascinating accomplishments.

Sandra Sobel
New “HR Business Analyst”
on the Block

(I am) “definitely impressed with the way this group has taken the time to go out and get feedback from the people who will be utilizing the system”

Sandra Sobel is the most recent HR Business Analyst to join the CMS team. She has been with CSUF for four weeks and hasn’t stopped running. She adds, “I came in at end of a big project, so I’ve had to jump right in. They were kind enough to give me benefits. Benefits are kind of my background, so I’ve been working on that”.

As Senior HRIS Manager at Ingram Micro, she was involved in the global implementation of several PeopleSoft e-apps. Once this project was completed, her role turned into more of a support position. She adds, “CSUF caught my interest because it’s a totally different sector. Learning higher education or health care is a different way of utilizing PeopleSoft” she continues, “having to work with part-time faculty and student workers is a totally different business model. The PeopleSoft technology piece hasn’t changed very much and it will take some time for me to adapt to the different business practices. Once we get through the first part of the implementation, I can get in there and learn what this is all about”.

Sandra’s interests involve more than software implementation. She also enjoys scrap booking and card making. “Stamping is the latest thing, so I usually do that once a month and get together with friends” she says with a smile. Her other interests include hiking and scuba diving with her husband. She is a certified diver but considers herself more of a “resort diver”. She explains, “I like to go where I can see the top of the ocean”. Sandra has visited exotic locations like Hawaii and South America.

As for the CMS project, she said she was “definitely impressed with the way this group has taken the time to go out and get feedback from the people who will be utilizing the system. They are very good at communicating, and the documentation is very good here”.
