I was born and raised in Cedar Grove, New Jersey, college-educated at Penn State, and got my master's degree at Seattle University where I've now worked for over 10 years.  With a background in residence life/student leadership and rooted in principles of inclusion and equity, I am proud to work with our team to provide a wide variety of options for students.  Whether you're just beginning your leadership journey or see us as another stop along the way, I hope that you will take advantage of everything SU has to offer. 

When I'm not working, I'm spending time with family: my husband Ryan, our son Eli, and our little dog Sybil.

I was born in the Philippines and raised in the Bay Area, having received my bachelors degree in Communication Studies at Westmont College in Santa Barbara and am also a proud alumnae of the Student Development Administration Graduate Program here at Seattle U. I’m passionate about connecting with others and building community, which is why my background leans heavily in Intercultural Programs, Residence Life, and served my graduate assistantship in Commuter and Transfer Student Services (now known at Student Success & Outreach)! Finding areas and pockets where all students can belong and thrive, is what fuels my work, and I am so grateful to work in a department that offers these pockets of joy around campus. When I’m not working, you might find me walking around campus (very slowly) with 16 and 7 year old mini-dachshunds Oscar and Rolo, making and eating dumplings, or sampling various types of Boba or desserts!
