I am a native Phoenician and second generation native Arizonan. I graduated from Arizona State University with a BS in Elementary Education, double minor in English and Psychology and a MS in Leadership from NOVA Southeastern. After working as a teacher and a principal for 16 years in the Mesa Public School System, my career took a dramatic change. In 2002, my husband, Rick Hamilton, and I started Sentinel Fence and Contracting and from that point onwards I have been in a quest not only to improve and grow my own business, but also to guide and mentor other minority business owners. Having been a member and now board member of the AMCA has been a rewarding experience for me personally and for my business.
