His was just a little more, well, enthusiastic.

Despite her being known for breaking local barriers for women, Alvord said, people seemed to be more interested that her nearly 35-year career began as a part-time employee with the city's Park, Recreation and Community Services Department. She started as a junior recreation leader while studying psychology and elementary education at Cal State Northridge.
