Director of Advising & Policy, Engineering Student Services
Where did you go to college?
After taking some time off to work and then touring California via several community colleges, I was a transfer student to UC Berkeley.
How long have you been with the College of Engineering?
I’ve been in Engineering Student Services since 2013. Before that I was an adviser in the College of Chemistry for 20 years.
What advice do you have for students?
Every once in a while re-evaluate how you’re spending your time. Make sure your time and energy are aligned with your values and goals.
What is the most unusual job you’ve had?
I was a bartender in a pub in a small village in the English countryside. The actual job wasn’t that unusual, but the regulars kept me on my toes.
What are your favorite TV Shows?
The Wire was my favorite. Now I like Shameless, Survivor, and many of the Netflix series.
What is your favorite song, band or type of music?
Eighties new wave brings fond memories, but I’ll listen to anything from hip hop to country.
