Coffee Coffee CoffeeWelcome to my web site.
My goal is to help students reach their
educational and career goals through education, hard work, and perseverance. From my early career as one of the first women on patrol in El Monte, CA to my stint as Chief of Rowland Unified School District Police, I've learned first hand the importance of integrity under fire and the value of lifelong educational pursuits. Join me for exciting new classes at East Los Angeles College.
