During that time, she has been a special education teacher, a vice principal, principal, coordinator of special education, director of special education, associate dean of categorical programs and a vice president of student services. She has also served as President of the Chief Student Services Officers Association (CSSO Association), formerly known as the California Community College Chief Student Services Administrators Association (CCCCSSAA).

Throughout this time, she has held true to a single tenet- everything she does and every expectation she has for herself, for her staff and every program, practice, or initiative must be good enough for her child.
