This is my first year in the position, and the second year at Roosevelt. I was born and raised in California, but I have lived in Colorado longer than I have in California. I retired from the Air Force out of Peterson AFB where I was the NCOIC of the Mental Health Clinic. Upon retiring, I worked at Cedar Springs Hospital as a Community Liaison, a team lead of the Adolescent Residential Program, and as the Program manager of the Inpatient/Outpatient Dual Diagnosis Program, primarily working with patients with substance abuse and PTSD issues. I then worked at Pikes Peak BOCES as a paraprofessional and a teacher for almost 10 years before coming to Roosevelt.
