I was born and raised in the beautiful city of Los Angeles. I’m an alumnus of California State University Dominguez Hills, where I earned my Bachelors in Psychology. I earned my Masters in Education from UCLA. I began my career in education working with GEAR UP and Upward Bound programs. Previous to joining USC, I spent three years working at San Jose State University as an Admission Counselor. I love trying different foods, riding my bike at the beach, and my dogs Sandy and Koufax.
