    Lisa Malleck

    Lisa Malleck

    Lisa spent more than 15 years toiling in bars and restaurants. After permanently relocating to Colorado Springs with her significant other in July 2016, she decided it was her time to seek something more suited to her strengths and desire – helping people! Pueblo Community College was her first choice in returning to school for many reasons; Pueblo is home to a large part of her support system, PCC’s great affordability, and quality of education. PCC also offers her chosen program, Radiologic Technology, which she will be applying to in Spring 2019.

    As a new Student Ambassador, Lisa is excited to help both new and existing students through the process of pursuing their own dreams!

    Email her at Lisa.Malleck@pueblocc.edu.

    Samantha Martinez

    Sam is a Student Ambassador currently working on her Associates of Arts degree in History. She is hoping to transfer to Colorado State University after graduating from PCC in May 2019. Her goal is to become a historian as a future career, preferably one that travels. She is very patient with those looking for help as either new or returning students, and strives to make the admission process as easy and comfortable as possible. She looks forward to being able to help others looking for an education!

    Veronica Moffitt

    Veronica Moffitt 

    Veronica was born and raised in Colorado and was homeschooled her whole life until she started college at an early age of 16. With this, she has seen the value of education and understands the importance of giving others the same opportunities PCC has given her. She understands that everyone learns differently and thinks PCC understands that too. She is currently earning an Associates in Studio Art and hopes to transfer to continue her education in art. “One person can affect your experience and education path so much; I hope I can be a person who makes that experience awesome.” With a great love for art and different forms of expression, her goal is to support others in their journeys for success. 

    Feel free to contact Veronica at Veronica.Moffitt@pueblocc.edu.
