Linda Wong, our administrative assistant, enjoys working for The Planetary Society because she gets to interact with our members and the public on our behalf. She loves “meeting members at events like Planetfest and over the phone and hearing their stories, their reasons for joining us, and why they are proud to be member.” The joy she finds in interacting with our constituents has kept in her onboard since 1989.
Upon entering our building, you’ll find Linda welcoming guests while juggling and sorting stacks and stacks of mail, answering every phone call that comes in, and responding to emails, among many other duties required to keep the office running smoothly. She also lends support to the membership department by acting as the first contact for Discovery Team members and fielding membership inquiries, all with only two hands. When she has an extra finger to spare, she’ll fill in with administrative duties throughout the organization.
