First Year at West Valley


Most Memorable Campus Experience

My most memorable campus experience is always Commencement. It's so incredible to see every student who has completed their journey at West Valley celebrate with their friends, family, instructors, and staff.


I have been working in Student Services since my undergraduate years, with a specific emphasis in the retention and matriculation of students through higher education. I am particularly interested in efforts to retain students of color, undocumented students, low-income students, students with disabilities, and students from the LGBTQ community. At West Valley College, I serve as the Career and Transfer Advisor and work in conjunction with Counseling to assist students in transferring to 4-year colleges and universities.
