On April 22, 2013, I began acting in out of class assignment as a vacation relief Correctional Sergeant, and held various positions including hiring Sergeant, Control Sergeant, and numerous Programs. On May 27, 2013, I was promoted to a Correctional Sergeant here at DVI. My first assignment was the Program I Sergeant. As the Program I Sergeant, I was responsible for DVI's Mainline General Population (GP), and the supervision of unit staff to ensure every day functions were operating properly. Program I had an abundance of Rules Violation Reports (RVR); for example, during the month of July 2013, Program I had approximately two hundred and fifty RVRs, due to the mass hunger strike incident. It was my responsibility to ensure this process was completed within time constraints and without violating any due process rights. While handling the disciplinary process, I worked directly with ISU and obtained incident reports and crucial evidence needed for the disciplinary process. During my tenure as Correctional Sergeant, I had experienced multiple incidents dealing with different STGs. During these incidents, I had the ability to obtain as much knowledge as I could, by interviewing involved inmates and documenting the information I obtained on a CDCR-128B and/or Confidential Memorandum. I would review inmate's case factors and confidential files to corroborate information that was provided. Periodically, I would interview inmates with safety concerns or who wanted to voluntarily provide information such as information of inmates possessing or dispersing contraband, inmate monikers and the identity of inmates holding positions within specific STGs. On July 21, 2014, I was appointed as DVI's ISU Sergeant.

On October 20, 2006, I completed the Basic Correctional Officer Academy, and began my career with the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR). I was assigned to Deuel Vocational Institution (DVI), where as a Correctional Officer, I worked numerous positions throughout the Institution. Upon completion of my probationary period, I was assigned as Correctional Officer at the Minimum Support Facility (MSF). As a Correctional Officer at the MSF I observed various ways inmates would breach the institution's security and introduce contraband into the secured perimeter. While at the MSF I took pride in familiarizing myself with the inmate's names, monikers and their bunk numbers. I would familiarize myself with which Security Threat Groups (STG), who was residing at the MSF.
