About Me:  
I graduated from UC Santa Cruz in 2011 with a degree in Language Studies with an emphasis in Spanish. Previous to my joining the team at UCSB, I was working in local education-focused non-profits. I have been on campus for a little over 5 years and have worked in both financial aid and basic needs support areas. Being in higher education where I get to support the basic needs of our students has been important and meaningful work. My office is located in the Food Security and Basic Needs Advising Center – please do not hesitate to reach out and visit us!
