I have lived in this wonderful area know as the Central Valley all of my life. I attended CSU Stanislaus and earned a B.A. In Liberal Studies with a concentration in Early Childhood Development. I have had the privilege of working in higher education for over 19 years and enjoy every aspect of helping students obtain their educational goals. When I’m not working you can find me spending time with my family and friends, walking/hiking and exploring new places, trying new foods or spending time at the beach. A new hobby I am looking forward to trying is kayaking. I am excited to be part of UC Merced and working with you on this extraordinary journey.
