I have served as the Treasurer/Tax Collector of Stanislaus County since January 2005. I have a Bachelors Degree in Economics from the University of California in Santa Barbara, a Masters of Business Administration in Finance from California State College Long Beach, and a Life Instructor Credential in Business, Banking, and Finance.
I have 38 years experience in Finance, with the last 27 of those years in government. Prior to being appointed Treasurer/Tax Collector for Stanislaus County, I served for over 10 years as the Chief Deputy Treasurer in the Treasurer/Tax Collector’s office in San Joaquin County, and for over 11 years prior to that as the Treasurer for the City of Palo Alto. I am married and have three children.
