She is used to handling challenges – before joining CCTA, she was regional vice president of state governmental affairs for Sempra Energy, a job that involved navigating Sempra through the California Energy Crisis. And earlier than that, McIntyre was an undercover narcotics agent. She is on the board of directors of the CCTA-funded California Channel, and formerly served on the board of Woman Escaping a Violent Environment. She is a product of local schools – Sac State (1984) and Kennedy High School.
