I am a first-generation college student and a former community college student, with a master's degree in Social Work and a master's in Counseling Education from San José State University. My educational journey was a transformative experience for my family and me.
I have been a counselor at several community colleges. Outside of academia, I have worked as a social worker for the state of California, San Mateo County and the Kaiser health system.
I am passionate about assisting all students, particularly underrepresented students, in meeting their educational goals. If I can do it, so can you!
I have been with De Anza since winter 2015, starting as a division administrative assistant with the Physical Sciences, Mathematics, and Engineering (PSME) Division.
Since then, I have worn a few different hats: I was a part-time counselor with the Office of Outreach and the EOPS program, as well as with the HSI-STEM Program at Mission College, before I returned to the PSME Division as an MPS Counselor.
I received my associate degree in Human Development Studies at Ohlone College in 2011, a bachelor's in Buisness Administration at CSU East Bay in 2013 and a master's in Education (Counseling and Student Personnel) from San José State University in 2016.
I absolutely love it here at De Anza. The students, faculty, and staff are amazing here and I love being a part of this community.
I was an MPS student at De Anza College, where I earned an associate degree in Liberal Arts with an emphasis in Social and Behavioral Science in 2009.
I transferred to Santa Clara University and received my bachelor's in Sociology with a minor in Ethnic Studies in 2011, and then earned a master's degree in Counselor Education from San José State University in fall 2013.
I’ve also had the opportunity to work in the EOPS office at De Anza as a part-time counselor, and as a manager for a college access program, called Destination College Advising Corps, through UC Berkeley.
I have been at De Anza since 2017, and I feel privileged to have the opportunity to work with the diverse student population here.
I received my bachelor’s degree in Mathematics from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in 2013, a master’s in Counseling from Santa Clara University in 2016, and a master's in Industrial-Organizational Psychology from Walden University in 2018. Prior to working at De Anza, I served as an academic adviser and program coordinator for the Associate's to Bachelor’s Program and the University Center at Cañada College.
I look forward to meeting you and assisting you in exploring, planning, and achieving your academic and professional goals.
