She has experience leading the business office team in the coordination and management of a $120 million general fund budget and $100 million in Proposition 39 bond funds for a public school district of over 10,500 students and 1,000 employees.  Throughout her career, she has navigated challenging financial times and economic recovery and implemented strategies to maximize resources to maintain the financial health of the school district.  

Ms. Perley’s interview and references revealed her leadership, collaboration, professional expertise, communication skills, approachability, and warmth.  Since 2000, she has held a variety of positions in the Business/Financial departments of the districts she served, including Santee, Lemon Grove, San Dieguito, and Evergreen.  In July 2009, she transitioned to Chief Financial Officer/Director of Financial Services.  Most recently, she has served Evergreen Union School District as their CBO, providing leadership of all business office services in order to provide optimal educational support for students and staff with the financial, human and technical resources available.  She provided direction and supervision of the Business Services team, including Finance, Purchasing, Risk Management, Nutrition Services, Transportation, Maintenance, Operations and Grounds.
