How did you get here?
I have lived in the Bay Area for 25 years. I am thrilled to bring my career counseling experience to UC Berkeley’s Career Center. I have held roles in different industries before becoming a career counselor and recruiter. I worked with college students, new graduates, and experienced professionals to assess their unique skills and experiences, determine career goals, and develop an internship or job search plan. I wrote customized resumes and cover letters, provided training to build professional profiles, and helped individuals prepare for the interviews.

What's cool about your job?
I get to meet and work with great students, hear about their career goals, and get a peek into each student’s diverse background. I will be working with students in the College of Chemistry, and I feel so lucky to play a role in helping students with their career choices.

What's the best career advice anyone has given you?Looking for a job can feel overwhelming, but you are not alone in the process. Leverage your network and the resources, tools, and services available to you to make the process more manageable.

Reading, hiking, cooking, and spending time with family. I am always searching for easy and tasty recipes to try…please share your favorites with me.
