I am a first generation college graduate who began my educational journey at Modesto Junior College. I majored in History and I transferred to UCSB where I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in History. After UCSB, I decided to continue my education and attended UCLA where I received a Master's in Education with an emphasis in Counseling and Student Affairs. My passion has always been serving students and helping them navigate their educational goal. As a General Counselor at Chabot College, I have the privilege to serve students at Chabot as a Counselor and as an Instructor. I look forward to seeing you in a Counseling appointment and/or in a Psychology-Counseling course!

I love helping students make university transfer their reality! My undergraduate degree is in Sociology from UC Berkeley and have my Master of Arts in Education (Counseling and Student Personnel) from San Jose State University. You can find me at Chabot College as a Counselor/Instructor/Coordinator for the Transfer Center seeing students via appointment, drop-in, and teaching Transfer Center workshops. I also teach PSCN 18 University Transfer Planning! I am the first in my family to go to college (GO BEARS!), enjoy music and jazz, and consider chasing my kids around my workout lol.

Hi. I have been a counselor at Chabot since 1992. Originally from SOCAL, San Diego. I graduated from San Diego State University with an AB in Art, MS in Rehabilitation Counseling, a MS in Computers in Education from National University and ABD from Alliant University. I have spent almost my entire professional life on the community college campus...and am loving every minute of it all. Both my sons attended Chabot and transferred to CSU schools. I live in Hayward, very close to the campus, so I'm certainly a "local". Look forward to working with you and assisting you with your academic/career goals!!

As a career counselor, I can provide career, academic, and some personal counseling. My primary focus for counseling is career counseling which entails helping students decide their career and education goals. Additionally, I can provide general employment related counseling such as finding an internship or resume help. As a coordinator, I will be building the Chabot College Career Center and developing services, resources, events, and programs. To learn more, visit the Chabot College Career Center website.

I first arrived at Chabot College as a new college student in 1982 and have returned intermittently ever since. After earning a few degrees, I returned in 1992 for graduate fieldwork and was hired thereafter as an adjunct counselor/instructor. My third act at Chabot started in 2016 when I was hired as a full-time counselor and articulation officer. I feel privileged to serve students and share in their life journeys. When I'm not working, I enjoy my family, reading, the outdoors, and art/design.
