Tell Us About a Recent Accomplishment
One personal accomplishment that I am proud of is getting out of my comfort zone and relocating to another state.
I assist the Dean and Associate Deans in supporting CED staff and faculty with the tools needed to prepare our students to succeed in completing their degrees at CSULB.
Before coming to CSULB, I worked for the Office of The Dean of Dual Credit and Early College High Schools at El Paso Community College (EPCC) located in El Paso, Texas.
I decided to make a career in higher education when I was working for Career & Transfer Services at EPCC, and was accepted to complete the master’s degree in Higher Education Administration at New Mexico State University (NMSU). While working on my degree, I understood that my calling was to stay in higher education to help my community.
My favorite aspect of my job is knowing that the work I am doing provides opportunities for our students to earn a degree that will allow them to grow and make a difference in other people’s lives.
