I started my career working in municipal recreation with the City of Downey (2002-2013) starting overseeing park facilities ensuring safety and cleanliness, and then later promoted to oversee staff and program development for city-wide events. The greatest experience I gained from the City of Downey was managing the Skate Park. Here I had the opportunity to organize skateboard competitions that catered to the communities needs by leading staff, ensure safety of facility budget, market event, developing timelines and a supply list. With the city I gained experience dealing with patrons who had complaints, wanted to make reservation or sign-up for activities in person or over the phone. I am currently working for a non-profit called the Southern California Municipal Athletic Federation (SCMAF) as the Member Services Coordinator. With SCMAF, I oversee over 900 members by creating and promoting professional trainings where they can network and learn new trends in their field. I also sell recreation insurance for sport teams/leagues, contract class instructors, and members. I have received my B.A. from California State University Long Beach in 2011 in Recreation & Leisure Studies with two additional certificates (Therapeutic Recreation & Management of Nonprofit and Volunteer Services).
