Hi Laney College Student Scholars!

I am excited and honored to work alongside you as you navigate college and work to reach your educational and personal goals during your time at Laney College!

Like you, I attended the Peralta Colleges! I transferred to UC Berkeley where I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Social Welfare with a minor in Education. As a first-generation college student myself, I experienced many struggles navigating higher education which led me to pursue my Master of Science in Counseling, with a focus in College Counseling and an emphasis in Career Counseling from San Francisco State University.

Before coming to Laney, I worked at Contra Costa College as an Adult Education Counselor where I was able to support general students and students that were transitioning to the college from Adult Education. I have also worked with special programs at Skyline College as the Puente Program Instructor/Counselor/Co-Coordinator, Promise Scholars Program counselor, and EOPS/CARE/CalWORKs counselor. These experiences have allowed me to grow and prepare to serve YOU!

I am fluent in English and Spanish.
