I joined AES in December 2018 as the administrative assistant. I have spent most of my working life in the Hi-tech and sports industries. I was employed at Hewlett-Packard for 16 years, and most recently I worked for the Sacramento Kings, for 14 years. I found out about AES through a fellow volunteer, Lisa Foster, at Front Street Animal Shelter, where I have been volunteering for the last 3 years (working with the cats). She told me about this opportunity and once I learned about the organization, I knew I wanted to be a part of it. I have four sons, all married, and 6 grandkids. In my spare time I like going to Disneyland, and spending time with my family. I recently retired from running marathons, having done 22 in the last 20 years. I still love to run, but much shorter distances now.
