As Finance Officer my primary duty is to serve as the faculty tri-chair of the district-wide Advisory Budget Council. There, in the spirit of shared governance, I provide a faculty perspective on the ongoing evolution of Maricopa’s financial affairs. Additionally, I liaise with the CEC and FEC to keep both administrators and faculty leaders apprised of conversations and plans regarding our budget, while simultaneously relaying back information from those administrators and faculty leaders to better inform our budget development process.
In 2005 I became a residential faculty member teaching Economics in the Social Science department at Glendale Community College. This year will mark my eight year on the FEC, where I have served at times as an at-large representative, a Senate President, the Finance Officer, President-Elect, and President.
