About Me

Future Electric Distribution Mechanic

I’m currently leading a clerical team for the Los Angeles County Child Support Services Department in our Special Operations Division. We’re responsible for inter-county transfers, mistaken identity cases, workers compensation claims, bankruptcy claims, and Notices Regarding Payment of Support. My career with CSSD began in the Court Operations division where my team was responsible for getting the entire departments legal documents filed by the Los Angeles County Superior Court. Due to the budget constraints caused by COVID-19, the courts gave up their lease at the Central Civil West courthouse and I was transferred to the Antelope Valley division where I assisted our legal team.

Prior to my current assignment, I worked for the Los Angeles County Registrar Recorder/County Clerks office and the Los Angeles Department of Public Social Services. In my service with RRCC, I worked in the election planning section where I was responsible for typing everything that appeared on the ballots. I also volunteered to be a VSAP tech support person where I deployed several ballot marking devices throughout Los Angeles. I also performed troubleshooting on any malfunctioning devices. At DPSS, I served in many different roles. I assigned cases to our eligibility workers, assisted case participants in the customer service area, distributed EBT cards/tokens/hotel & shelter vouchers, and created new cases after verifying participant eligibility.

Some of my greater accomplishments include being showcased in Supervisors Kathryn Barger’s weekly newsletter for successfully fundraising school supplies for 150 needy children in the Antelope Valley, assisting DHR Director Lisa Garrett with her technical troubles on her visit to the Central Civil West courthouse, and being nominated by my peers to advocate on behalf of two of the largest bargaining units against Los Angeles County Management in contract negotiations for SEIU721. I was also recently asked to serve on the Los Angeles County Secretarial Council Board of Directors. In the past I’ve been asked to create a template that the Los Angeles County Child Support Services Director Terrie Hardy would use to present statistical data on the department to the Board of Supervisors.

I’ve now set my eyes on the Los Angeles City Department of Water and Power. Stay tuned!
