Presently I serve as the interim director of Facilities at Norco College, Norco California. I oversee maintenance, operations, grounds, warehousing services and the custodial department. I also work closely as a liaison with the Corona Norco Unified School District High School Mid College, JFK. Prior to this I was the Director of Maintenance and Operations at Fullerton High School District, Fullerton California. I oversaw maintenance and operations and warehousing for seven comprehensive high schools along with a community high school. I was actively involved in supporting and strategizing the passing of a one hundred seventy-five-million-dollar bond for the high school district. I was recruited by the Fullerton High School District Superintendent because of the close interaction between him and myself as the Manager of Physical Plant at Fullerton College. While at Fullerton College, I managed the maintenance and operations of the college. Further to this I also coordinated the emergency preparedness response plan for the college. I managed the construction projects and relocations of programs during the two hundred-million-dollar modernization of the college over my tenure. I started my career in the K-14 system at the Riverside County Office of Education as a custodian. I began to take on other duties and was the maintenance operations and warehouse supervisor. I became the manager for maintenance and operations and transportation, where I had the opportunity to work with 23 school districts within the county. Within these districts, programs included: Special Education, Foster Youth Program, Child Care Services, Regional Occupation Programs, Alternative Education, Head Start and Migrant Education. This invaluable on the job education took place over my 15 years as a County Office Employee.
A few years after my arrival to the United States from Colombia, I joined the United States Air Force where I served as a high voltage electrician working in high voltage distribution systems. As a member of the 452nd Civil Engineer Squadron, I had the privilege of serving multiple humanitarian projects in Panama, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Korea and Japan. The opportunity to serve under privileged communities has marked my life as one of the greatest joys of my career. I treasure these experiences and memories and I take them with me to each of my career assignments.
