Though not an alum, I quickly felt at home here at UCSC, and hope to serve the SAB and campus community to help continue creating a home for others. I joined campus in the fall of 2013 as a member of CHES, specifically serving as a Coordinator for Residential Education in the Crown College Residence Halls. I spend a lot of my time working directly with students and student leaders; encouraging conversations around personal development, social justice, and leadership.

I hope my time with the SAB affords me the opportunity to help our campus move forward in a challenging world. Our work as an institution of educating the citizens of our nation and the world play a crucial role in shaping a future we can be proud to leave for the next generation. SAB does great work in ensuring our staff can continue this important work, and I am pleased to contribute what I can.

I was a student at UCSC From 2003 - 2007 and a student employee at OPERS during all 4 years, working for event staff, athletics, and the East Field House Facility Center.  I was then hired by OPERS as the interim Facility Center Supervisor where I supervised the Center student staff.  In April 2008, I was hired in my current job as a Conference Coordinator and Student Supervisor at UCSC Conference Services.  Working for Conference Services, I have the pleasure of working with a variety of different departments all across campus.  I have gained valuable experience from this interaction with our diverse campus population of faculty, staff and administrators.  Over the past 7 years, I have been directly affected by the ever-changing world of the UC system, both as a student, student employee and as career staff. Especially now, in this time of budget cuts and changing campus environment,  I am happy to serve on The SAB and give a fresh and energetic outlook to things, from the many perspectives that my experience has exposed me to.  I have always been very passionate about my work and the departments I have worked in for at UCSC.  In my second year on the board I am very excited to serve and continue to contribute to make this a better environment for our staff members, which in return makes this a better University for our students.
