I care most about how education can affect unemployment, and about addressing unemployment and career growth in the Central Valley. I’ve spent the last 18 years helping people better their lives through their careers. Currently we’re working on a tool that greatly increases job seeker’s success in selection and retention of a career. Change in the community is hard because people are impatient and changing anything significant takes time – if it doesn’t happen fast momentum and support fade. I like being around people who attack things differently to create positive change in the Central Valley.”
