I previously worked for the California State Auditor’s Office, where I evaluated government programs to help ensure the state was spending taxpayer dollars wisely. My work was featured in Pepperdine Magazine. Our projects were typically conducted at the request of the California State Legislature.
Projects I led:
- High School Graduation and Dropout Data (CALPADS), March 2012
California’s New Database May Enable the State to Better Serve Its High School Students Who Are at Risk of Dropping Out
- Sex Offender Commitment Program, July 2011
Streamlining the Process for Identifying Potential Sexually Violent Predators Would Reduce Unnecessary or Duplicative Work
Select Other Projects:
- Department of Developmental Services, August 2010
A More Uniform and Transparent Procurement and Rate-Setting Process Would Improve the Cost-Effectiveness of Regional Centers
- Electricity Production & Delivery, August 2009
After the energy crisis of 2000 and 2001, new issues and challenges could impact the supply of electricity, its transmission, and consumer rates.
- California Unemployment Insurance Appeals Board, November 2008
Weak Policies and Practices Could Undermine Employment Opportunity and Lead to the Misuse of State Resources
