I graduated from Sonoma State with a degree in Literature which serves me well since I do so much writing in this job. I have been volunteering in schools and my children’s activities for years. I started working some 8 years ago at Mentor Me Petaluma as a Site Coordinator overseeing the volunteer mentors who were working with the children. I loved my work and got very involved. I eventually became the program director and after several twists and turns I became the executive director.

I am in my second year of being the executive director. I have turned around a sinking ship financially. I am leading the organization into a new building with much support from the community and board of directors. It is a very bright future.

Why are you at WORK?: I love working here. I love knowing I can making a difference in a child’s life.
