Senior Academic Advisor


Hi! My name is Quela Ortiz Upston and I am a Senior Academic Advisor at Arts & Sciences Advisement Center. I was born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico and love the land of enchantment. I graduated from the University of New Mexico with a BA in Sociology and a minor in Women Studies. I am a proud Lobo and will always bleed that Cherry and Silver. I have experience working at many different places at UNM, such as the Dean of Students Office, the LGBTQ Resource Center, and Casas del Rio. I am excited to advise students and help them succeed!
