M.Ed., Student Development Administration
B.A., Political Science

How did you get here?
Third time’s a charm! I have over 20 years experience in student services. From Chico State to Humboldt State to BERKELEY to UNC Chapel Hill to Northeastern University to BERKELEY to Cal State East Bay and FINALLY back to BERKELEY! I discovered my passion for working with students in regards to career development, after working in residence life, student activities, teaching and academic advising.

What's cool about your job?
There are many great things about this job, but truly, meeting so many amazingly talented students and learning about new careers, as I work to educate myself so that I can be the best resource I can be for students.

What's the best career advice anyone has given you?
How about two things?! Don't try to do everything, because that's impossible and no one will remember what it is you do. Be great at a few things and everyone will remember you. And... don't let your work be work. Find something you enjoy and build a career out of it.

Hanging out with my husband, 2 boys and my dog, cooking, golf, playing Scrabble, sports, coffee, cooking, knitting, Elvis, Yankees, did I say cooking?!
