I am the Financial Assistant for the Department of Communication. I began my career at UCSB in July 2008 as a limited employee in the Early Academic Outreach Department as an Administrative Assistant. I started working in the Department of Communication in February 2011. I am very grateful for my new position and plan to be here many more years. For the past 20 years I have been the Chief Financial Officer for our family owned construction company operated by my husband and son in the Santa Barbara County area. I have been married for 32 years and have 3 grown children, all living in the Lompoc area. My two sons are married and I have one grandchild and one more arriving January 2012. My husband and I enjoy spending time with family and friends and we also serve on the Hospitality Team at our church doing many large community events each year. We also enjoy riding our Harley Davidson motorcycle and plan to take our 2ndrode trip to Colorado in the summer of 2012.
