This is my first year.

What is your favorite part of your job?
I love learning from students and hearing about their incredible life experiences.

What is your approach to advising?
Similar to a travel agent, I see myself as a dream agent. I ask questions, provide information and promote resources that support students in arriving at their dreams and goals.

What are your interests?
I recently learned to play golf and do so whenever I have the opportunity. I also enjoy cooking, especially when trying new recipes and spices.

What advice do you have for students?
Students should make the most of their time at Cal by taking advantage of the multiple forms of education available to them (academic, social, culinary, regional, etc.).

What are your favorite TV shows?
I’m on the Game of Thrones bandwagon and also love Scandal.

What is your favorite song, band or type of music?
I love all types of music. If you have any must-listen-to’s, please share.
