(Administrative Specialist, College of the Desert Foundation)

I believe every person deserves the opportunity to pursue higher education. My parents were not in a position financially to contribute to my schooling. I'm grateful that I was able to obtain a combination of scholarships, grants and loans to complete my four-year degree. At the time, I honestly didn't realize who was providing that financial support. It's time for me to give back, and working at College of the Desert Foundation is my avenue to make that happen.
