Counseling & Academic Advising

Profile Picture of Claudia Hernandez

MA School Counseling
With Cabrillo College since 2015

I am a Counselor at Cabrillo College and have been working in the Community College system at some capacity for nearly 20 years. I served as a Financial Aid Advisor at State Center Community College District for many years and have also worked with EOP&S students at College of the Sequoias. This work inspired me to become an Academic Counselor and served students at Fresno City College, Clovis Community College and Madera Community College Center. I have been with Cabrillo College since 2015 as an Academic Counselor and Instructor.

Of all the positions I've held, being a Faculty member and Counselor at Cabrillo is the best! As a general academic counselor I have the privilege of working with all students on campus. I am also a designated ESL and Financial Aid liaison. I teach CG 51 - Planning College Success in the Fall semester.

Having been a community college student myself has really helped me to understand and appreciate student perspectives. I am a first generation college student and when I began college I was clueless and really didn't know what to major in. Through self exploration and some help along the way, I found my path. After transferring from Reedley College, I graduated from Fresno State with a BA in Chicano Studies and a Minor in Art and earned an MA in Education-School Counseling from Fresno Pacific University. Through my experience in serving community college students, I have developed an unrelenting passion for helping students succeed. It gives me great personal and professional satisfaction that I can play a positive role in a student’s life.
