How did you get here?
Following a summer internship in SF, I fell in love with the Bay Area and decided to ditch the mind-melting heat of Arizona.  A few years in sales management turned into an incredibly fun gig recruiting students from universities around the PNW—including UC Berkeley!  Realizing the most rewarding aspect of my work was supporting career-minded students, it was an easy decision to jump into higher ed career services at UC Berkeley.

What's cool about your job?
I help thousands of students connect with employers to kickoff their careers—what's cooler than that?

What's the best career advice anyone has given you?
Raise your hand early and often—both to ask questions and to take initiative.

Interests/Hobbies
I spend much of my time outdoors and stay active in ways that rarely include a treadmill, such as: slacklining, bouldering, hiking, foraging, and skiing.  Along the way, you might catch me cooking up a new recipe, strumming a song on the guitar, or snapping a picture, too...
