Professional Advisor

Academic & Career Advisor - Students, up to 60 units, in Environmental Studies, Psychology

I am grateful for the privilege to be a member of the dynamic and committed team of academic and career advisors supporting students to realize their unique educational and professional goals and aspirations. Cultivating and sustaining authentic relationships with students is essential to their success in college and beyond, and it is a gift that I get to support students in this role during their time at Humboldt. Before joining ACAC, I was fortunate to contribute to racial equity efforts in area TK-12 schools and in the community while based in Humboldt’s Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (ODEI). Learnings from that work transfer well to the advisor role where maintaining an awareness of how systems of advantage and disadvantage impact each student’s experience and striving to embody cultural humility inform how I engage with students. I have an MA (2016) in Spanish from Middlebury College as well as a BS (1999) in Spanish and a BS (1999) in Nutrition from Penn State University. My undergraduate advisor was integral to my success and, 20+ years later, is still a beloved friend! When I am not working in ACAC with students, I like to read, thrift shop, ride my bike, and play tennis with my ten-year-old son.
