What is your approach to advising?
Rather than being transactional, I try to get to know you and your interests, so I can personalize each advising session. I listen to everyone with and open mind and heart because everyone is on their own (potentially difficult) life journeys.

How did you get here?
During my undergraduate years, I was highly involved in a lot of extra- and co-curricular experiences outside the classroom, like being involved in student government, doing undergraduate research, sitting on a student conduct board, being an orientation leader, etc. These experiences helped me enter graduate school at UCLA right after UC San Diego. After a few years working in residential life, I decided to venture into the academic advising world! 

What advice do you have for L&S students in general?
Do not take your time here for granted – it will fly by! Take advantage of the excellent faculty here by going to office hours, explore and try out some undergraduate research opportunities, and other extracurricular activities like clubs and sports. Personally, one of my regrets in college is not studying abroad, so if you have the means to do it, do it! 

About me
I was a first-generation college student. I speak English and Spanish, and am trying to re-learn French at the beginner-intermediate level. I love taking walks and hiking, exploring new coffee places, binge-watching Netflix/Hulu shows, politics, exploring new cultures, etc.
