I was born and raised in San Diego, CA and attended UCLA where I studied psychology and education. After graduating, I combined these two academic interests and worked as a school psychologist in public high schools in Seattle, WA. My experiences with helping students navigate and prepare for the transition to higher education inspired me to move back to southern California so that I could continue this work at the university level (and live in a warmer climate again!). I am passionate about working with students to help them envision and pursue a college education.

Why USC?

It has a strong alumni base and is committed to helping students prepare for the future, whether it be further graduate studies or their career objective.
