I started at Cabrillo in April of 2019 as an adjunct instructor in the CABT department, and became interim Evening and Weekend Computer Technology Center Coordinator in January 2022. I was previously a Cabrillo College student intermittently from 2002-2015 and a student employee in the Watsonville CTC from 2012-2015. I've worked with Microsoft Office products since 1992, Google Suite products since Google Docs launched in 2005, and various Adobe products since 1992 and both PCs and Macs since 1992.

I have a bachelor's degree in general studies with a concentration in Sociology, and a master's degree in communications with a focus on marketing and new media. Prior to teaching at Cabrillo, I spent 21 years in the niche newspaper publishing industry, at a nationally published monthly newspaper for Harley-Davidson enthusiasts. Over the years, I served as graphic designer, associate editor, managing editor, FileMaker developer, customer service, and tech support, often all at once. I developed workflows and processes and procedures to maximize productivity while working in perpetually understaffed circumstances.
