This page is designed to help people who are looking to communicate directly with Napa Valley College. As the Public Information Officer, I will update this page periodically to answer questions, connect people and departments, direct visitors, introduce opportunities, listen to stories about the college, celebrate student success and work closely with fellow staff members throughout the college and within the Office of Institutional Advancement, which is the community relations and marketing arm of NVC.
Carollee Cattolica is the department manager, Scott Allen is marketing coordinator and Famela Recinto handles secretarial work.
After working 33 years for the Napa Valley Register, St. Helena Star and Weekly Calistogan, plus five years as a Napa Valley media relations specialist, I was hired by the college as a part-time PIO in January 2016 and became full time July 1, 2017. I love working with a team of professionals whose focus is to enhance Napa Valley College as the community treasure it has been for 75 years.
Carolyn and I live in Napa, where we raised four daughters and enjoy eight grandchildren, four dogs, two cats and a bird we call Archemedes.
In order for me to do my best to serve the general public and the college community, I constantly seek feedback, criticism, suggestions and input.
