As COO of the company, I manage all of the day-to-day operations as well as serve as the Human Resources Manager. I graduated from Fresno State with a degree in Child Development and taught elementary school before starting at Denham in 1975. I hold a Professional of Human Resources (PHR) certification.
I am currently a City of Fresno Planning Commissioner. My past involvement includes 2004 Chairman of the Board of the Greater Fresno Area Chamber of Commerce, EDC Board, RJI Leadership Council, Fresno Business Council Board, Fresno United Neighborhoods Board, Hope Now for Youth Advisory Board 2005 Chair of the Chamber PAC, San Joaquin Political Academy Board, Citizen’s Committee to Update Fresno’s General Plan and Growth Alternatives Alliance that developed the nationally recognized planning document, “A Landscape of Choice”.
I have a very simple professional philosophy adopted from Winston Churchill- Do the right thing, every time.
When I’m not working my favorite activity is to spend time with our children and grandchildren. I also love to get my hands dirty in my garden and, when time permits, ride my Haflinger pony.
