I’m from San Diego County and after giving seasons a chance in Colorado for three years after finishing my masters, returned home to Southern California. I’ve spent my entire career in admission and have enjoyed every minute of it, from working with transfer students to first year undergraduates, I’m a firm believer in the opportunities that comes from a student going to school. My free time outside of work is spent with my dog Cooper, exploring new vegan restaurants/recipes, and cheering on the LA Dodgers!


Why USC?

Coming to USC has always been a dream because of the community and support given to students, staff, and faculty. USC has so much to offer from its academics, to research, to athletics, and so much more with everything else LA has to offer in its backyard.
