Rebecca Lee, Ed.D, is the Director of the Personnel Commission for the Poway Unified School District. She brings over 15 years of diverse human resources experience having worked in K-12 and community college districts. She has trained and directed teams in the areas of classification, compensation, recruitment and selection, EEO compliance, Title IX investigations, and employee investigations involving discrimination and harassment.
Additionally, her background experience includes planning, coordinating, and evaluating student programs and services at the University of Southern California with a focus on understanding the impact of intervention strategies, relationships, and campus climate on student learning and engagement.
She holds a Doctorate in Educational Leadership from the University of Southern California, a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from California State University, Long Beach, and a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science from the University of California, San Diego.
She is passionate about volunteer work and community engagement and believes that systemic change begins at the micro level – when we work to engage, empower, and bring visibility to the stories and voices within our classrooms, schools, and communities. In addition to serving on the Pride Board, she volunteers with the American Red Cross, the San Diego LGBT Center, and Volunteer with Cheli.
She currently resides in Escondido with her wife and two sons and hopes to see more Pride flags line the neighborhood streets of North County.
