How did you get here? 
I started my career in higher education at UC, Riverside where I spent close to 10 years working with students to help them in the career development process. I then moved across the country to work at UNC Chapel Hill as a Career Counselor helping students clarify and attain their career goals. During my 12 years in the Tar Heel state, I held various positions in Career Services which evolved into the administrative functions of managing a career center and developing staff. I'm excited to be back in California, working with a great team at Cal, supporting phenomenal students. 
Who do you work with? What is cool about your job?
My job rocks because I get to work with a variety of people, build connections across many areas and collaborate with countless offices to bring the best services and programs to students at Cal. 
What's the best career advice anyone has given you?  
Don't be afraid to make mistakes. Life is about learning opportunities, both good and bad and you are faced with them daily. The key is to ask yourself, "what did I learn from that and what would I do differently next time".

I am a recovering Softball Mom and runner, so now I just enjoy hanging out with my husband, daughters and dog Peyton.  I love National Parks and exploring the great outdoors wandering in new locations on foot. 

I enjoy watching Baseball (Go Giants) and try to see a new baseball park each year. I enjoy hiking, biking, quilting, cooking, baking and of course....eating.
