What’s on your desk? Kelli Bostwick
Truth be told, there isn’t much on Kelli Bostwick’s desk, but that in itself is a story.
Before becoming a One-Stop specialist (and now a One-Stop II), Bostwick was a social worker at the Day Reporting Center for Monterey County, working with people on county probation including recent prison parolees. Pictures of her sons (one in college, one in high school) and other personal items weren’t allowed. When the caseload doubled during the release of record numbers of state prisoners to ease prison crowding and a much tougher crowd of parolees started to show up at her desk, Bostwick decided it was time for something else. The university’s amazing view of the ocean and the Monterey wharf and a chance to still be helping people led her to Brandman. Although she’s been at work there for over a year, she’s finding it hard to shake the “no decorations” rule.
But she does have a chef’s hat thanks to Pamela Holguin, director of the Monterey campus. “She’s our baker,” said Holguin. She’s so good that baking cupcakes and cheesecakes is one of her three side businesses. She also manages the business side of her family’s beauty salon and sells real estate. Her co-workers say she’s also the source of encyclopedic knowledge about the Monterey-Pacific Grove area.
