What's your favorite part of your job?

Having the privilege to observe a student s journey and seeing them achieve their dreams and goals.

 

What is the best class you've ever taken?

At Sonoma State, I took a careers in Sociology course that explored possible career opportunities in my major. The course also went over resumes, cover letters, and how they were used in our field. Ultimately, I was able to create a 5 year career plan and use what I learned to obtain my first internship the following summer. 

 

About me: 

I enjoy reading memoirs and murder mysteries, watching films and sports, trying new foods, traveling abroad, playing board games, and staying active.

 

What excites you about helping students graduate from SF State?: 

As a first generation student, I had many mentors and others who supported me throughout my college career. Without them, I would not be where I am today. I am excited to now support students and know how exciting graduation can be for a student and their loved ones. The journey is just beginning!
