Associate Dean of Students & Director of Career & Calling
Hello! I am the Associate Dean and Director of the Center for Career and Calling in OM 257 and the Internship Hub in HH 113. The best part of my job is working with this amazing team of professionals who are dedicated to making sure students have a successful outcome with their education. My own background includes a BS in Business and MBA from Sacramento State University. Previous work experience included Human Resources/College Recruiting for a bank. My on-campus job told me that higher education was where I wanted to work and led me to jobs at a state college, a community college, and my favorite job here at Saint Martin’s University. I love being able to connect students with potential employers, our alumni, and resources to be successful.

Hi everyone! I just completed my MBA in the Spring of 22′ and also received my undergraduate degree in Communication Studies with a minor in Gender and Identity Studies. I have been at Saint Martin’s for a total of 6+ years now (5 as a student and now as a staff member) and I love our community as a whole! I enjoy being able to relate to current students as I help them navigate to the next phases in their lives. Aloha!
