Hey there, it’s so nice to meet you! I’m one of your behind-the-scenes Advising Assistants, so you may not recognize my face around campus, but I’m there with you all in spirit!

During my time as an Honors student at UCI, I was involved in CHSC all four years, worked as an Honors PAA during my third year, and volunteered as a Peer Mentor to many ambitious students like yourself as often as I could. In 2015, I graduated Cum Laude with degrees in Education Sciences and Psychology & Social Behavior.

Since graduating, I’ve enjoyed several work ventures including early childhood education, interior design, and real estate. I’ve been married since 2018; I met my husband when we were both living in the Shire as first years, and we are now raising our very own future anteater. I spend most of my days now at home with my daughter, where we enjoy napping and reading lots of books!

My true passion is travel, and I make great efforts to explore new places whenever possible. Some of my all-time favorite destinations include Venice, Santorini, and Alaska. My big bucket list item these days is visiting all 63 of the US National Parks. 24 down, 39 to go!
