The West Covina Post Office was first established on September 6, 1958, during the post-World War II era. Harold D. Dean was the first postmaster and served from 1958-1961. Between 1950 and 1960, West Covina was considered the fastest growing city in the U.S. with the population increasing 1,000 per cent from less than 5,000 to more than 50,000 citizens.

As the 11th Postmaster of West Covina, Armijo is committed to serve the West Covina community as proudly as the postmasters who have served before her. Armijo enjoys working out in the gym and spending as much time as possible with her family, Latisha Dedeaux and Ashley Miranda.

Armijo will manage two post offices with 108 employees, 39,056 delivery addresses, 1,241 post office boxes, 57 city routes, and 61,000 pieces of daily mail volume to a population of 110,181.

The Postal Service generally receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products, and services to fund its operations.
