Dwaynitta Parker

Child Support Officer

LESU Representative


Hi! My name is Dwaynitta Parker and I am your Law Enforcement Support Unit Representative (LESU) for the Sacramento County Criminal Justice Employees’ Union (SCCJEU) effective January 2024.  In addition to my Union service, I am currently employed as a Child Support Officer with Sacramento County Department of Child Support Services (DCSS). I am a San Diego, CA native, co-parent to four one-of-a-kind children and a spouse to one unique individual. While living in San Diego, CA, I earned and received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Human Resource Management in 2015 from Ashford University, now known as University of Arizona Global Campus. After 35 years of living in San Diego, we decided to uproot our family to Sacramento, CA in August 2018 for a reset, recharge, and restart.

My professional background in San Diego, CA is comprised of working in banking as a Senior Account Manager with Union Bank, N.A., in education as an Enrollment Advisor with Ashford University, and in public services as a Human Service Specialist with San Diego County Department of Health and Human Services. I also served as the Secretary and Operations Coordinator board member for a non-profit organization known as ABC Children’s Foundation Inc.  My professional background in Sacramento, CA is comprised of working temporary assignments through Apple One Staffing Agency as a Senior Office Specialist with Sacramento County In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) Public Authority and a short-term assignment as an Account Clerk with Sacramento County Department of Human Assistance. I began my journey with Sacramento County DCSS in July 2019 as a Child Support Officer. During my time with DCSS, I have actively participated and contributed in various committees and projects within our office.  This has allowed me to build collaborative relationships with diverse groups of individuals.

Personally, I enjoy participating in activities and reading any materials that promote personal growth and professional development. I am currently one of the writing contributors for our DCSS News Journal for our personal growth and development corner of the journal.  I strive to promote positive energy and mindsets, I believe in judgment free spaces, I appreciate diversity and collaboration, I believe in teamwork makes it all work, and I value integrity, transparency, fairness, respect, growth, and change for the better. As your LESU Representative, my goals are to be proactive in learning and embracing my role, to be resourceful, provide important updates, openly receive, communicate, and/or address your concerns or ideas, actively be involved wherever I am needed, and give strong levels of support to all members of SCCJEU. During my term as the LESU Representative, I genuinely hope to be a valuable contributor to viable change and positive developments. I am grateful to have the opportunity to serve you all in this role and I look forward to working together for the better. Together We Can Thrive!
