Golden West College is one of three community colleges that comprise the Coast Community College District include: Coastline Community College, Golden West College, and Orange Coast College. The fourth component of the CCCD used to include the public broadcast station KOCE (Channel 50) until it was sold on November 03, 2004 to the KOCE Foundation. Golden West College is located in beautiful Huntington Beach, California.

An alumni of Golden West College, I am currently working at GWC as a Division/Area Coordinator - Special Assignment in the Health Education/Physical Education/Athletics Department. I was transferred on January 21, 2010 from Techonology Support Services. I became an adjunct instructor at GWC in October 1999. I designed and had been teaching the Computer Concepts course which is part of the Cisco Certification Tract since the inception. I was also an part time instructor in the Computer Office/Administration Lab. I have been working for the Coast Community College District for over 30 years (27 years as classified), mainly located at Golden West College. My most memorable event was when I was honored to be recognized as the First Classified Employee of the Month at Golden West College. Since then, I was awarded the Employee of the Month for December 2002. I have been a member of the Safety Committee (formerly Disaster Preparedness Committee & Crisis Alert Committee & Safety Committee) for over 15 years.

I am a member of the Coast Federation of Classified Employees - Union for Classified Employees.

I have completed a Macintosh Maintenance and Troubleshooting course, a PC Maintenance course, an Understanding Networking Fundamentals course, a course in CGI, and a Java course. I've worked on computers for several years.

On a personal level, I am very involved with Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Response for people AND for animals. I am a founding member and current board member of the newly formed organization called Surf City Animal Response Team (SCART) .
