PPSI, Labor Contracts

I grew up in Brockton, MA and moved to Mission Viejo, CA when I was 8 years old. Graduated from Mission Viejo High School in Mission Viejo, CA in 1982. Graduated with an AA degree in Liberal Arts from Saddleback Valley College, Mission Viejo, CA in 1985. Graduated with a BA degree in Liberal Studies from California State University Fullerton, Fullerton, CA in 1990. I worked numerous part-time jobs prior to working at Flex-Link Products as an accounting clerk and various positions to a purchasing manager in San Fernando, CA. I worked at U.S. Pole Company as production control in Sun Valley, CA.

One inmate that really impressed me recently was Tana Elliot. She was eager to learn everything. She would listen to whatever instructions you gave her to complete the task at hand. She would always want things right and would keep at it until they were. I would share information on business and how to do something that would help her after she was released. She succeeded in landing a job in customer service at ACI.

I particularly enjoy working with the inmates and seeing their delight when they learn new skills. Being a role model for inmates and enjoying the work that I do in the Business Development Unit.

My last vacation was to Corpus Christi and Padre Island in Texas. I sat along the National Seashore reading a book or just taking a long walk. Also, did some tourist things.
