I was born and raised in California and lived in Illnois for three year ½ years in my early 20’s.  I graduated from San Jose State University with a BS in Accounting and received a Masters in Finance from Golden Gate University.  I received my CPA in CA and was also licensed as a CPA in CO when I move to Colorado in 1998.  I have worked for a variety of non-profits over the years, mostly in the healthcare field,  9 ½ years with Catholic Healthcare West (now Dignity Health) and 16 1/2 years with Valley Wide Health Systems in Alamosa.  Both organizations believe in healthcare as a right, not a privilege, and strive to serve the underserved.  I have two children and three grandchildren.  I belong to the Woman’s Citizenship Club who has supported Tu Casa in a variety of projects over the years.  Not only is domestic violence the signature project of the WCC International organization (GFWC), I have also witnessed domestic violence and sexual assault in my family and wanted to contribute to an organization that assists  others who are in similar situations.
