Education
I received my B.A. from Sacramento State University in Organizational Communications, and my M.S. from Santa Clara University in Counseling.
 
About me (likes & hobbies):
I'm pretty eccentric. I like to play computer games like League of Legends, but I also work towards being more healthy and having an active lifestyle. I strive to be more mindful in my day and enjoy the little moments more. I have found a new love for scented candles and aroma therapy.  
 
What is your approach to advising?
I like to take a holistic approach to advising because I come from a counseling background. I like to see the whole picture and to be mindful that every person is an individual. I work hard to understand that many barriers can shape a student's development. 
 
What advice do you have for SF State Gators?
Break out of your comfort zone and don't be afraid to make mistakes. Do things that you have always wanted to do. 
 
What's your favorite part of your job?    
Helping students maximize their college experience. 
 
What's the best class you've ever taken?
Counseling Skills and Process. Although I am continuously learning and taking in new information, this class aided me in knowing what to say, how it say it, and to fully be present in the room.  
 
What excites you about helping students graduate from SF State?
My passion is to help people actualize their dreams and aspirations. Assisting students to graduate from SF State coincides perfectly with my passion. I get to be part of the process towards closing the gap for students achieving what they want in life.
