I was born and raised in Southern California. I worked as a USC Tour Guide during my undergraduate years and found a passion for the Admission profession. I enjoy learning about new cultures and everything that comes with it – religion, music, and (of course) food. I like spending my time outdoors and going on new adventures. I spend much of my free time rooting for the USC Trojans and the Los Angeles Lakers!

Why USC?
USC has the perfect combination of world class academics and extracurricular and social opportunities. Throw in the unmatched Trojan Family, and you have a university that you can really call home. The number of opportunities students have available to them in all aspects of their education really create a unique and valuable experience that will have a lasting impact.

Admission Advice:
Spend some quality time researching the schools and programs you’re interested in and ask questions. Be yourself; we just want to get to know you.
