What is your approach to advising?
I am ready to listen to you and always prioritize answering your questions. Come in with your thoughts and questions
How did you get here?
After graduate school, I worked as an admissions counselor for a few years at San Jose State University. Most recently I worked as an academic counselor in the wonderful L&S Deans' Office at UC Davis. I was fortunate to be able to come back to the Bay Area where I grew up and be able to continue work in Letters & Science at Cal.
What's your favorite part of your job?
I love talking with students and helping them with their life questions.
Most unusual job you ever had:
I don't think I've had any really unusual job. What is most interesting however are some of the staff I've worked with.
Besides excessive internet usage, sitting in front of the tv and/or playing the Wii, I enjoy playing basketball, working out and rooting for the Warriors, 49ers and the SF Giants.
What advice do you have for L&S students in general?
Make the most out of your college experience. College isn't just about academics. This is the time for you to explore and grow. Try out a new class, join a club, do some research with a professor, study abroad, get an internship, join a club, volunteer somewhere, participate in or observe a cultural or recreational activity… whatever you choose to do, get out there.
