I am

  • a Fresno State Bulldog, Born Bred, and Educated;
  • a Rotarian and Humanist who attempts to live by the Object of Rotary everyday and in every way. 

I love ethics and try to do the right thing as I understand it.  I am far from perfect, just ask my family.   

While I fail more often than I like; I enjoy the challenge of being an ethical and moral person as best I can.

We continue to build on our Union’s warm relationship with Lt. Gov. Eleni Kounalakis. Following her visit to San Marcos earlier this year, when she met with Chapter President Vanessa Vincente, Executive Board Officer Pete Rauch and local chapter leaders, the Lt. Governor has also sat down with the chapter leadership at Cal State LA and San Jose State. When possible, we make sure our local chapter leadership can meet and talk with her directly, so she can get to know us better. Our goal for these meetings is for the Lt. Governor, who is a CSU Board Trustee, to hear directly from us, the frontline Support Staff. 

Details coming soon.
