I was born in Fresno and raised in Kingsburg, CA. Out of high school, I attended Reedley College to earn my AA-T in Psychology. I then headed up to California State University, Stanislaus to earn my B.A. in Psychology with a concentration in Developmental Psychology. Throughtout my undergrad I worked as a Student Ambassador for Relations and Outreach(Reedley College), Tutor Advisor and Head Resident Advisor for Upward Bound (Reedley College), and as a Student Assisant for Admissions and Outreach (CSU Stanislaus). I am a strong advocate of higher education for ALL and I look forward to helping the diverse and intelligent students of UC Merced through their college journey. During my free time I enjoy cooking, spending time with friends and family, and being out in nature.
