Gwen Smith
Title: Department Secretary
Engineering Science and Technologies

AAS Office Professional, Parkland College

A mother of two and U.S. Air Force veteran, Paxton native Gwen Smith considers herself an “easygoing” person who “loves helping people.” Since joining Parkland in 2007, she has thoroughly enjoyed “how everyone is so nice and approachable. It is easy to ask questions and learn.”

She enjoys reading (Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden is a favorite novel), scrapbooking, and going on cruises—any cruise! You might catch her dining at Kamakura restaurant (loves to watch her food as it cooks!) or taking in a Cardinals game around town. She offers this for advice: “Smile! It shows in your work and makes the day easier!”
