Seeing a clear path towards graduation, and understanding the connection between classes and career goals is a motivating factor that I believe all students should experience. Through advising, I hope to help students find their educational purpose, plan their steps towards graduation, and equip them with the knowledge to make wise academic decisions. In addition to higher education, my personal interests include learning new ways to entertain my son, cooking, and updating this website!

Being a part of a student's college experience and helping them reach their goals is what drew me to become part of the College of Education and Integrative Studies Advising team. My goal is to provide students with a holistic approach to advising to empower students to create an individualized plan, set goals and thrive as an individual. It's rewarding to work with students in helping them plan their college journey so that it will lead them to the success and fulfillment in their future careers. As a Cal Poly Pomona Alumni (B.S. In Kinesiology), I enjoy being back on this fantastic campus. In my free time, I am a yoga enthusiast, am blessed with a beautiful family and enjoy many forms of creative expression
