Director of Advising and Policy, Engineering Student Services


Where did you go to College?
I am a graduate of UC Berkeley

How long have you been with the College of Engineering?
I have worked at Cal for 20 years; I have been with the College of Engineering for the past 6 years.

What are your interests?
I love good food - eating it mostly, but sometimes cooking too. I'm a fitness "fan"atic - I enjoy traditional things like running, biking and swimming, but also trying out all the fun, new classes at my gym.

What advise do you have for students?
Keep a daily journal. Even if it's short and just says what you did, enjoyed that day, who you hung with. It is so much fun to go back and read, especially when you get to be my age! You'll forget unless you write it down.

Favorite TV shows this year:
FARGO, Welcome to Sweden, Big Bang Theory

What is your favorite Book(s)?
I LOVE reading - mostly fiction. Couldn't pick a favorite if I had to. Libraries are the best thing ever. Free books are the only way to go. 

What is your favorite song, band or type of music?
How does anyone ever pick one song or type of music?!? Not possible! Danceable if I have to narrow it down to something
