I am a former College of the Redwoods transfer student and HSU graduate who later returned to CR to go through our CIS Networking Program. I am very grateful for the high-quality education I received at CR, and our CIS Program and faculty, in particular, were instrumental in preparing me for a successful and rewarding career in the field of CIS. In my current position as an Instructional Support Specialist, I have had the privilege of working at the college that I love for over 10 years. I enjoy the challenging and varied duties of maintaining our five IS Dept. computer labs, which lets me put my technical skills to use on a regular basis. And, my passions for education and teaching are fulfilled daily as I work with our CIS students in the classroom, assisting them in learning invaluable technical skills, guiding them along the path to finding meaningful employment, and celebrating in their successes as they achieve their goals.
