I first arrived at Chabot College shortly after high school as a student. After transferring to UC Davis, and earning a BA in Rhetoric (minor Political Science), I returned for an internship while studying for an MS in Counseling Psychology (emphasis Career Life Development). After graduation, I was hired as a part-time counselor/instructor. My third act at Chabot started in 2016 when I was hired as a full-time counselor and as the college's articulation officer. The best part of working at Chabot is interacting with our amazing students and my dedicated colleagues. When I'm not working, I enjoy my family, reading, the outdoors, and art/design.
