Dg is a proud American born in Richmond, Virginia. She is the daughter of a retired U.S. Air Force Chief Master Sergeant and Special Education public school teacher. Over the years, she has had the opportunity to travel extensively throughout the United States and Europe. Her father instilled the value of service over self, and her mother ensured that education and knowledge were the keys to a greater understanding of our impact on others and the personal contributions we can make.
Dg continued her father's legacy and enlisted in the U.S. Air Force, beginning her career right here at our very own Fairchild Air Force Base, in Spokane, as an Airman First Class, in 1980. She was later stationed at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas and in 1986 she received the Meritorious Achievement Medal, for Heroism, after her courageous act of saving a trainee from suicide.
She is proud of the long, honorable, family tradition of military service and commitment to our country at home and abroad. Dg's source of pride endures as her son's patriotic volunteer obligation, with the Army National Guard, as a recruiter, continues the legacy.
Upon Dg's separation from the U.S. Air Force in 1988 she moved to Sacramento, California, where she began her state service and continued her passion for community activism and advocacy. She retired and moved to Liberty Lake, Washington in December of 2015 to be with her family, including four young grandchildren. Her commitment to fostering the public's connection to its government has never changed.
Dg is a daughter, sister, mother, grandmother, neighbor, and friend, who wants to meet people at their point of need, immediately. Dg is running to represent all of us and is proud to say she is ready to serve the community of Liberty Lake.
Dg Garcia served her country for 7 1/2 years before later joining the civilian workforce as an employee for the state of California.
Dg has had the honor of working for three separate state agencies of responsibility. She was privileged to work for the Secretary of State in two administrations under the leadership of the Honorable Tony Miller and Honorable Bill Jones. Dg assisted in the design and implementation of the restructured DMV motor voter forms and helped develop and design the voter registration affidavit.
She coordinated California's Second Annual Secretary of State Elections Summit II, held in Sacramento and was one of the Secretary's pioneers for the agency's initial Business Improvement, Training & Assessment Pilot Program. Dg later accepted a position with the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing in the Office of Governmental Relations - Legislative Division. She also served as part of the legal support staff in the Division of Professional Practices.
Dg was appointed as an Advisory Member for the state of California by Senator John Vasconcellos and Assemblyman Anthony Pescetti, to serve on the Joint Committee for Preparing California for the 21st Century, among other designations throughout her years in state service. She retired in 2005 after 11 years and began her career as a public and governmental relationship building consultant. Dg was called back to state service and worked for the Board of Vocational Nursing and Psychiatric Technicians in the Enforcement Division, its Licensing Division, and the Nursing Education Consultants Division, before retiring for the second time to move to Liberty Lake, Washington.
As a former principal consultant and business owner, Dg had ample opportunities during her career to bridge the gap between the public and its government. Noting that education and information were the building blocks to sharing our views, collaborating our joint efforts, and building cohesive relationships. She represented a link between the public and government by providing coordinated forums on land use and planning, education reform, diversity, elections, fiscal responsibility, and the impact on local and regional issues. Dg has contributed to positive exchanges along the way, breaking barriers to education and information.
With combined years of commitment to activism and advocacy, Dg has continued to maintain what is considered principal components of why she works tirelessly for others. She has served by contributing to the welfare, growth, and development of her communities while managing and growing a healthy family, protecting the principles of her work-life balance, all heavily rooted in a secure belief system whereby much remains required of her.
Dg remains firmly dedicated to the importance of transparency - The more we know.
