I have served for 15 years protecting the quality of education and the financial health of Foothill- De Anza Community College District. I've helped navigate the district though tough budget years. COVID-19 will further challenge our fiscal health. It has been a difficult transition to online-only classes and staff heroically rose to the challenge. Incredible success occurs when we invest in the right things. I will make the right choices during these challenging times.
I chair the Audit and Finance Committee of the District. I deliver a balanced budget. I have served as the Board's representative to the California Community College Trustee Board and their representative to the Distance Education Technology and Educational Advisory Committee to the California State Chancellor's office on planning, vision and policy. I advocate for students who don't have access to reliable devices or Wi-Fi during these pandemic months. My mission is always student success.
