Though not an alum, I quickly felt at home in the UC, and at UCSC specifically. I joined UCSC in September of 2013 as a Coordinator for Residential Education at Crown College, then moved to Extension as an Academic Program Director in 2018. Recently I have transitioned into a new role as the Department Manager for Chemistry and Biochemistry, returning to the Santa Cruz Campus. I joined my staff advisory board to advocate on behalf of fellow staff members to our campus senior leaders. I am now serving as chair for AY19-20, and am so excited to join CUCSA and work on system wide staff issues.
