- Served as Moorpark College's first full-time grant writer in the 2000-2001 academic year; and, again from August 2002 through August 2005, until the budget crisis at the Ventura County Community College District forced her lay-off.
- Accepted a faculty appointment to be Project Director for the California Learning Community College Network Grant, a three-year grant at Moorpark College from 2001-2004 (effective August 14, 2001).
Due to the state budget crisis, this grant was cancelled by the State of California after only one year. So, Dr. Mikos returned to her prior position as Resource Development Coordinator/Grant Writer, as noted above.
- Returned to her independent consultancy practice in September 2005 to provide training, education, grant/proposal development, and performance improvement consulting to both private and public sector clients.
