Biography

Angela Valles was born and raised in the Victor Valley and is vehement about improving the quality of life in the High Desert. Angela is no stranger to overcoming difficult obstacles. Angela became a mother at the age of 16, had to drop out of school and focus on becoming a mother. Angela had to grow up fast, but that didn’t stop her from pursuing her dreams.  

Angela went back to school to earn her associate’s degree in 1996 from Victor Valley College, where she later taught Administration of Justice classes in her spare time in 2003.  After receiving her associate’s degree she entered the male-dominated industry of corrections, where she had to not only earn the respect of her colleagues, but also of the adult male prisoners being housed there. In just eight years she worked her way up to the position of warden at the Victor Valley Medium Community Correctional Facility, which was later bought by San Bernardino County in 2005.

While working for the correctional facility, education came calling again and she worked to get her bachelor’s degree in Organizational Leadership from Azusa Pacific University in 2004.

In 2005 Angela was hired at Victor Valley Waste Water Reclamation Authority where she is currently the Director of Finance.  Angela went on to receive an International Master’s degree in Organization Development from Pepperdine University in 2006.  

Angela decided to use her talent in leadership to serve her community and was successfully elected to the Victor Valley College Board of Trustees in 2007 and served as College Board President in 2009.  In 2010 Angela was again elected with top vote to serve on the Victorville City Council from until 2014.  

Angela achieved all of these goals while raising two beautiful and successful children. Angela’s son Emmanuel is an Air Force Veteran that currently works in management for BNSF and graduated from Azusa Pacific University.  Angela’s daughter Alissa is a Hearing Aid Specilaist and is in college.   Both of her beautiful children are married and have blessed her with grandchildren Ethan, Cruz and Sophia.

Angela truly believes in service above self and serves on several other boards and committees in her community. Angela’s experience in Organizational Development helped her make a great difference on the Victorville City Council, College Board, and VVWRA to build community, fiscal responsibility and transparency.

 

All of Angela’s life she has sought out challenges and risen above them. Angela’s passion is to make a positive difference in her community. In everything Angela does she tries to reflect the sentiment of her favorite Erma Bombeck quote: “When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, “I used everything you gave me".
