How did you get here?
I have worked in higher education since 2006. I began as a student assistant at UC Riverside and transitioned to a career position after graduation. I initially worked in purchasing and payroll, but I yearned to help students. Little by little I began taking on more duties that related directly with advising students. I ran workshops, answered general student questions and helped with international student paperwork. When a position for an International Student Advisor opened up, I applied, interviewed and was hired for the position. Since then I have worked as a programmer, academic advisor and college advisor. In the summer of 2019 I decided that it was a time for change and was lucky to be offered a position here at Cal.
 
What advice do you have for L&S students in general?
Enjoy everything that Cal has to offer. The time you are here will pass by in a blink of an eye. Enjoy your time here at Cal and make the most of all the wonderful opportunities that are at your disposal. Don't be afraid to ask for help in whatever form you might need it. We are all here to assist you and look forward to helping you reach your goals.
