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

What's cool about your job?
Everyday, I get to bring people together to create new opportunities and build lasting connections—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; rock climbing, slacklining, hiking, foraging, and skiing are a few activities that come to mind.  Along the way, you might catch me cooking up a new recipe, strumming a song, or snapping a picture, too...
