As a first-generation college student myself, I am well aware of the challenges faced and how to overcome them. My goal is to empower each student I encounter to see their potential and reach their goals. I have found my purpose in life at Proverbs 15:22 “Plans fail for lack of guidance, but with many Advisors they will succeed."

I have 15 plus years of advising experience and have worked in 2 other Alamo Colleges. My personal motto (which I stole from D. Nettles) is “Do the RIGHT thing because it is the right thing to do.” I love to make a difference in the lives of our students.

I came to (SAC) as a student in 2000. I became an employee in 2006. Working in multiple areas has developed my extensive knowledge of the college and the district system. My goal is to serve students as a guide to help them navigate their college path through graduation from SAC and beyond. I'm a servant leader and my purpose is to serve students to help them achieve their educational goals.
