I was born and mostly raised in Lompoc, though I moved to Phoenix in my teens and did some traveling

in the southwest, living in New Mexico and Colorado for a time. I came home to the Central Coast in the

80’s and then graduated from Allan Hancock College in 2000. In 2004, I earned a Bachelor of Science in

Social Science from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. I also received a minor in Psychology, with my concentration

being Social Service.

I currently hold the position of Finance/HR Director at the North County Rape Crisis and Child Protection

Center, a position that I have held since 2008. Through this work I have had the good fortune to meet the

Founder’s of FUTURE for Lompoc Youth and it was through those relationships I was asked to be a member

of their Advisory Committee. When then asked to join the Board of Director’s I did not hesitate. I am

honored, and very excited, to be a part of this innovative, Lompoc focused, effort.

My passion is human services; the reason I am dedicated to the mission of FUTURE for Lompoc Youth is

that I deeply believe that every person has the right to be treated with respect, to pursue their dreams

without recrimination, and to be offered opportunities that will enhance their future no matter their

current situation. My position on the Board allows me to fight the good fight for equality, our children,

and our community, something for which I am very grateful.
