Effective June 30, 2014, I will be starting my new position as an International Student Programs Counselor. This means that I am only able to accommodate International Students with a F-1 Student Visa for counseling services.
As an instructional faculty member, I teach Human Development, Career Life Planning, and Counseling courses.
I have been with De Anza College since 2006 in various roles including Academic Advisor and Financial Aid Outreach Assistant. I have been a Student Success & Retention Services (SSRS) Counselor, as well as have coordinated both the SSRS Peer Advisors and the Foster Youth Summer Bridge program. I'm still part of the outreach team at De Anza and actively involved in our student leadership/outreach conferences.
Before coming to De Anza College, I was a Financial Aid Technician for Skyline College (San Bruno, CA) and EOPS Program Services Coordinator for the College of San Mateo (San Mateo, CA). My previous employment also includes 9 years with the San Diego County Office of Education working as a Friday Night Live Mentoring Program Coordinator.
“We’ve bought into the idea that education is about training and “success”, defined monetarily, rather than learning to think critically and to challenge. We should not forget that the true purpose of education is to make minds, not careers." -- Chris Hedges
