My Chapman journey began in 2018. I earned a B.A. in Psychology with a minor in Latinx and Latin American Studies from Chapman University in Fall 2021. I am from San Jose, CA. My vocation in life is to serve others and make a positive impact on individuals’ lives. I am furthering my education at Chapman by pursuing an M.A. in Marriage and Family Therapy. Outside of work and school, I enjoy going to the beach, exercising, thrift shopping, and spending time with my friends and family. I am excited to support you all and continue my Chapman experience!

I earned both my B.A. and M.A. in American Studies from Cal State Fullerton where I also worked as an academic advisor prior to joining Chapman University in late 2007. My primary duties at Chapman are related to testing, dismissal advising, and to assist students with meeting all of their requirements so that they may graduate in a timely manner. Outside of advising I am interested in US cultural history and the built environment and may one day pursue a Ph.D. in order to study these things further. For the time being, however, I find great pleasure in reading, writing, photography, cycling and drinking coffee.
