Academic Experience: 

I have taught at Santa Rosa Junior College from 1998-2015. Have done training through the college for the Tech Academy, SRJC Center at Coddingtown, the Petaluma Campus, and our off campus county locations as well as online courses. I have served on many committees across campus and  I also served as a Senator for the Academic Senate for the college for over 5 years.

 

I have worked at the Santa Rosa Junior College for over 23 years in one capacity or another, and consider it almost my second home. I began my career here working at the bookstore when I was 15 years old all the way up to becoming an instructor in 1998.  I taught courses in technology and business education as well as wine appreciation and wine studies.

 
After my teaching stint, I started my position as Manager for Workforce Training and Instructional Partnerships in 2016.  Although I am no longer in the classroom, I am still involved with training, curriculum, and student success.
