during the course of her almost 33 years of employment. In her last position held from 2001 until
July 1, 2012, she served as assistant director of rehabilitative services overseeing community corrections
including probation, parole, and home confinement, and all prison based programming and treatment
including education and vocational training, health services, mental health and substance abuse
treatment and many specialized counseling programs. During the ten years of her tenure as warden,

throughout her career has been on preparing incarcerated men and women for their reentry into the
community upon release and the development of activities designed to bridge the gap between
institutional services and community corrections.
