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.

I came to Chapman University in February 2012. Born and raised in the city of Orange, I am very excited to be working here at Chapman! I earned my B.A. in History with a minor in English and American Literature from the University of Southern California. After graduating from USC, I worked at UC Irvine as an Undergraduate Program Coordinator in the Department of Earth System Science. With a passion for assisting college students achieve academic success, I then moved to California State University, Fullerton, to work as a Academic Advisor in the Academic Advisement Center. While at CSUF I earned my M.S. in Education with an emphasis in Higher Education and a Certificate in Community College Studies. Outside of work, I enjoy going to the theater (I love musicals!), watching movies, TV, and my favorite sports teams (go Angels! go Trojans!), traveling, hiking, reading, and taking care of my dog, Betty White (yes, that's her name).

I am currently working on my graduate degree in Public Policy & Administration at CSULB. I worked at Long Beach for four years in the College of Health & Human Services Advising Center before deciding to make the move to Chapman. When I am not working or studying I enjoy knitting, crocheting, spending time at the beach, and going to the dog park with my pup, Marshmallow. I’m excited to be a Panther and help support student success!

I am a Chapman panther through and through! In 2009, I earned my B.A. in Psychology here at Chapman and recently completed Chapman’s M.A. program for Marriage and Family Therapy. I have called Orange home since birth and wouldn't have it any other way, as I adore the city’s the old towne essence and vintage charm. Ever since I can remember I have always had a desire to help others. I began working at Chapman in 2011 and joined Academic Advising in 2013. I have two dogs, Yumi and Coco, who are cooler than Betty White (Dina’s dog). I love to laugh, play stylist to my colleagues, go to concerts, listen to vinyl records, and make others smile. When I’m not in my office or in the classroom, you can usually find me at Target.

I came to Chapman University in 2017 from APU where I worked in Academic Advising and the Registrar’s office and I have also experience in housing and residence life when I worked at Texas Christian University and leadership development while working at Mount Saint Mary’s University. I earned my A.A. from Antelope Valley College, my B.A. in Liberal Studies from Cal State Northridge, and my M.S. in College Counseling and Student Development from Azusa Pacific University, so you could say I loved being a student and consider myself a lifelong learner.
