I worked at Palo Verde Community College for twenty years in Admissions and Records and in Financial Aid. I received my AS in General Studies from Palo Verde Community College in 2005, a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Capella University in 2013, a Masters Degree in General Leadership in 2016 from Capella University, and I am currently in a Doctorate program at Capella University in Leadership in Educational Administration.  I have served on the Palo Verde Community College Board of Trustees for almost four years. In 2017, I was the Vice President, and in 2018 I became the President of the Board.  I was also nominated to the CCCCT Board of Trustess to serve as a member in March and I was nominated again by the CCCT Board to serve in September.  While I didn't win either time, it was truly an honor to be nominated twice.
