Biography, Education and Training

While a student at UC Berkeley, I would regularly take the intercampus shuttle - the Jitney, for those who remember - to visit a friend at UC Santa Cruz.  When I was done with school, I packed-up, moved down, took a job at UCSC and have been working at the university in various capacities ever since:

Latin American & Latino Studies Department Manager, 2017 to present
Undergraduate Affairs Director, Physical & Biological Sciences, 2009 to 2016
Biological Sciences, Assistant Manager, 2003 to 2009
Biological Sciences, Administrative Analyst, 1999 to 2003
Biology Department, Administrative Assistant, 1998 to 1999

As with many of my fellow staff members, I see myself as a steward of the university's mission of education and research.  In providing services and managing resources, I strive to be fair and equitable in supporting students, faculty, and my department in navigating the university to achieve their goals.
