Advising Philosophy

I practice a holistic, student-centered, learning-centered, interdisciplinary, social justice approach to advising. I am genuinely interested in the success of all my students, including prospective students and alumni. I see "success" defined differently for each student and that definition can change as life is experienced and knowledge is gained.

About Me

I started my academic journey as a non-traditional student a community college in Seattle with a focus on interdisciplinary studies. I transferred to University of Washington and received my BA in Comparative History of Ideas with minors in Diversity and Education. I moved to Albuquerque to pursue UNM’s graduate program in American Studies. I worked a GA for a few programs at UNM including Cinematic Arts and CAPS. I realized I love the UNM student population here, and was very happy to find this staff position that directly impacts the academic, professional and personal success of UNM students, especially those seeking an education in global, interdisciplinary, ethnic, and social justice studies. Outside of work, I practice and instruct in yoga and meditation, especially for populations needing healing from different levels of trauma and stress.
