Acting Health Director Gets Job Permanently

June 11, 2003|From Times Staff Reports

Linda Shulman, acting director of the Ventura County Behavioral Health Department, has been hired for the permanent position.

The Board of Supervisors voted unanimously in closed session Tuesday to offer her the job.

Shulman has been performing the director's duties in the year since supervisors fired former director David Gudeman, citing poor management.

Shulman, 41, is a psychologist and earned a master's degree in business administration from the University of Nevada Las Vegas in 1996.

She joined the county's mental health department three years ago, supervising the 450-employee agency's daily operations under Gudeman.
