Hello Plavan Families! My name is Cheryl Tom and I am the Office Manager at Plavan. I started working at Plavan on December 15, 1997 as the Office Assistant and in August, 2004 I became the Office Manager. Coming to Plavan was quite a career change for me. I worked for Northrop Aircraft for 12 years as a trainer and procurer of spare parts for multiple fighter jets. I am Southern California born and raised and live in Huntington Beach with my husband of 35 years.
