I am a native of Sonoma County and an SRC alumnus. I worked in sales, marketing and residential lending before realizing that my true calling has always been the pull back to education, the mission of the community college, and especially, SRJC. So in 2006, I became full-time classified staff as an Administrative Assistant at the Information desk and college mailroom. From there, I becamse the Administrative Assistant in charge of the business office at the College's Small Business Development Center (SBDC). The SBDC is where I got my first teaching experience, in the Youth Entreprenurship Program. Throughout my time at the SBDC, I worked with the high school youth of Sonoma County teaching them work ready and soft skills. Most recently, I supported the SRJC Dean of Agriculture and Culinary Arts.
Ten years later, I am just as proud and passionate about calling SRJC my second home. This college is where I built the foundation to become a good student. The success and experiences I've had here paved the way for my educational and career successes. I am most excited to share and give back to students what I have been so fortunate to learn and experience.
