WELCOME to Cabrillo College!

As a first generation college student and someone who had to work to put themselves through school, I know some of the struggles that students experience. I work hard to ensure that I explain the college process in the simplest terms so that students don’t feel overwhelmed.

Cabrillo has been my home since 2006. Prior to that, I worked as an Admissions Counselor for the California State University system for five years and as a high school counselor for three years.

My greatest accomplishment is seeing students graduate and/or transfer to a university. To me, Cabrillo has always been an amazing place for opportunities and accessing a brighter future and I’d like to share that secret with you.

Working at the Watsonville campus allows me to work closely with so many students. I work with a fantastic team that is always ready and happy to help students. I know how important it is for our students to be successful; come learn how I can help you break down the barriers higher education might pose. I stand ready to work hard and help you become the next Cabrillo College graduate!

Hope to see you soon!
