Biography, Education and Training

As a former UCSC undergraduate student, campus tour guide, residential assistant, administrative assistant, department advisor, college advisor, and college preceptor, I have immersed myself in the UCSC campus and culture: building community, interpreting and developing policy and procedure, finding innovative solutions to problems, and implementing program changes to improve our service to students. In thousands of individual advising meetings I have found ways to help students achieve their educational goals, by finding and meeting students where they're at developmentally, locating available resources and support, and assisting and advocating for students in navigating paperwork and policy.
