Masters of Public Policy
With Cabrillo College since 2010

I feel so fortunate to live in Santa Cruz and work at Cabrillo with amazing staff and students.

I grew up in Whittier, California, about 15 miles outside of downtown Los Angeles, and I am the second oldest of 8 siblings. I grew up playing sports like baseball and basketball with my brothers and friends and even got into chess and tennis. Any UCLA, Lakers, Raiders, and Dodger fans out there? Those have been my teams since childhood, but now I appreciate playing and exercising more than watching.

I've worked at different colleges like UCLA, UCSC, and Cabrillo and try to make a difference for the students who come here. I was an EOP Counselor for 6 years before coming to Cabrillo.
I have two kids who are 12 and 14 and I love to share outdoor activities like camping, backpacking, fishing, and hiking with them. I try to surf although I'm not very good.

My door is always open for students to stop by with any questions. Graduation by our students from Cabrillo or getting a a new or better job is the best thing to witness at Cabrillo. Your success is our job. Makes us work hard for you!!
