Office Hours: Monday–Thursday 10 a.m.–5 p.m.

I have a passion for helping community college students succeed in attaining their academic goals. As a first-generation college graduate and a product of the community college system, this is the environment where I love to be! I earned a bachelor’s degree in communications from Cal Poly Pomona and a master’s in counseling from CSU San Bernardino. Previously, I worked in Admissions & Outreach at Cal Poly Pomona and served as a counselor for the STEM Grant Initiative in partnership with Riverside City College. In my current role, I specialize in educational partnerships, recruitment, assessment, and grant management. My favorite part of my job is having meaningful interactions with our STEM students and learning how best to serve them.
