Fun Facts:

  1. After living and working in Seattle for the past 4 years, I am excited to return to my beautiful hometown of San Francisco. 
  2. Favorite food: It's a toss up between soyrizo burritos from Papalote and fresh Vietnamese spring rolls.  
  3. Favorite pastime: going on adventures with my son and daughter- an adventure to her could be riding on the carousel, a walk through the woods, or a trip to Trader Joe's- she likes it all.  I also love taking pictures and diving into new craft projects wholeheartedly.  
  4. Wisdom I've learned over the years: Opportunities surround us every day! Seize them and never look back.  
  5. Why I love working with students: I have always enjoyed doing whatever I can to help others and make a difference in their lives.  I hope to use my skills to help USF students be successful- and if I can't answer a question, I will make sure to find someone that can!
