I was born and raised in Santa Ana, CA. I attended UC Merced and earn a BA in Psychology and Political Science and a Minor in Writing. Coming back to UC Merced I hope to give back to the students, faculty, and staff of this fine institution that aided me in this journey and help the students succeed in reaching their goals. I am excited to be a part of this amazing team and start this new journey in higher education. I am a big Disney fan and I had the privilege of working there as well. I enjoy traveling, going on new adventures, and experiencing new cultures. I am also a big foodie and enjoy many kinds of food, except for seafood.
