I was born in Fresno, California and came to UC Merced to complete my B.A. I majored in Economics and Psychology with a minor in Sociology. Immediately after graduation I went to Fresno State to complete my M.A. in Higher Education, Administration, and Leadership. While at UC Merced I worked as the Lead Student Assistant for the SFC, and after leaving I went on to coordinate Clubs and Organizations and Major Campus Events at Fresno State. I am passionate about student success, social justice issues, and making a difference in higher education. I supervisor our Enrollment Services Peer Mentor team. In my free time I like to travel, attend concerts, spend time with family and try new food places!
