Biography

I re-entered the workforce after being a stay-at-home mom and attending Cabrillo College. Years later, I was a re-entry student attending the University of San Francisco to complete my bachelor's degree. I began working at West Valley as a part-time employee assisting the CalWORKs department to place students in campus jobs. From there, I moved to the Campbell Center assisting the Title IV-E program provide trainings to county workers that help kids in the Foster Care system. After four years there, I moved to full time employment in the Disability and Educational Support Program (DESP) where I work with the best team ever! I have truly found my place, helping a vulnerable cohort achieve their personal and academic goals.
