Dr. Evans' Bio
Dr. Katina Evans has always been determined. At an early age, she determined she could overcome the obstacles society put in front of her. Raised in the Deep South, she and her husband took their life savings and moved with their two beautiful little girls to start a business in San Diego. Unfortunately, the business failed and the family found themselves in San Ysidro, penniless, and homeless. Then her husband left.
Crushed, but undeterred, Dr. Evans did not give up. In fact, she felt that God was prompting her to get a law degree. What seemed like a crazy idea, God blessed into a remarkable against-all-odds victory. She would miraculously earn her law degree in just 3.5 years, under almost unthinkable circumstances, raising her girls in shelters, borrowed apartments, and ramshackle motels.
With a degree in hand, her professional career took off. Dr. Evans has worked in a law office, helped a non-profit succeed, and even oversaw a grocery chain with $11 million in annual sales. When she started teaching as an adjunct Business professor at SDCC, she realized that she had a passion for helping students succeed. That’s when her incredible journey led to the role she has today as the Interim V.P. of Academic Affairs at SDCC — what she calls the greatest blessings of her life.
