April Crabtree

April Crabtree

Vice Provost of Strategic, Enrollment Management
I'm originally from Tennessee but have been fortunate to call San Francisco home for the past nine years. I love being outside, so you'll find me on the Russian River in the summer and skiing at Lake Tahoe in the winter. San Francisco is a city where anything is possible and there's everything to do. My calendar is always full with unique activities, music, and amazing food.

Counselor Sherie Gilmore Cleveland

Sherie Gilmore-Cleveland

Associate Vice Provost, Enrollment Management
Born and raised in Oakland, California, I am a Bay Area girl through and through. I graduated from the University of San Francisco with my BS in 2001 and MS in 2005. I love the energy of USF. The people, the campus, and the passion for others captured my heart, and I've never let go. The conversations I've had (over a great meal in the city), have brought me to tears through laughter while also inspiring me to serve others.

Counselor Alejandro Wences

Alejandro Wences

Assistant Director of Undergraduate Admission
Originally from Anaheim, CA, I'm often exploring different cities, checking out amusement parks, or trying to fall in love with nature. But, honestly, nothing makes me happier than finding cheap flights. On the weekends, you can always find me trying to find new good food or checking out Rotten Tomatoes for new shows and movies.

Counselor Milford Miles

Milford Miles

Assistant Director of Undergraduate Admission
Even being born and raised in Southern California, it is hard not to fall in love with San Francisco. From the amazing ocean views near the piers to the culturally diverse cuisine, it is easy to understand why SF is such a great city. I even met my wife, who is a San Francisco native, during my time in the area. Yes, San Francisco has really been great to me.

Counselor Rebecca Williams

Rebecca Williams

Director of First Year Admission
I grew up in Mississippi and attended college here in the Bay Area. Once I arrived, I never left. My favorite thing about San Francisco is the overwhelmingly eclectic food scene! I also still love taking the ferry between San Francisco and other parts of the Bay—it's one of the best ways to see the Bay, in my humble opinion.

Counselor Stephanie Ortiz-Garcia

Stephanie Ortiz-Garcia

Associate Director of Undergraduate Admission
I'm originally from southeast Los Angeles and moved to San Francisco to attend USF (Class of 2016), and I am currently pursuing a master's degree. USF is special because it offered me a place where I could learn more about social justice and integrate it within my social, academic, and professional roles. My favorite restaurant in the city with the best burritos and tacos is El Farolito, which I recommend you visit if you are ever in town. I am excited to connect with you this year!
