She earned her B.A. degree in Government from California State University, and have worked in the political and non-profit sector for many years before joining the company. After graduating from college, she was hired on as a Grassroots’ Campaign Organizer for the “Kathleen Brown for Governor” campaign”, (California Governor Jerry Brown’s sister).  While working on the campaign, she learned the necessary skills on how to listen and communicate with people; how to strategically form statewide collaboratives to create uniformity; and most of all how to work with people under stress. 

Soon after, she was the Project Manager of an award winning nationwide research project.  And thereafter, she continued her work in the political sector, in which she strategically represented several legislative issues at the California State Legislature for a variety of political associations and clients.  After 2008, she had the pleasure of working with an employment career center to help Veterans and long term out of work job seekers find employment.  She felt it was one of the best jobs she ever had. She enjoyed connecting hiring companies with the right employee during a stressful time in our nation.
