Greetings Seawolves! I am the Campus Life Advisor for General Clubs, and you’ll quickly find that general clubs are not general at all. General clubs encompass all politically affiliated, cultural, academic, departmental, and even honor societies. We have over 100 general clubs at SSU and my role is to support these clubs through all processes from budgets to event planning to group dynamics.


I was born and raised in Oakland, CA and then did my undergrad at UC San Diego where I majored in Political Science. After I graduated, I spent a couple years working in education technology non-profits and then decided to attend graduate school. I received my Masters in Education at Rutgers University specifically focusing on Student Affairs. I was an involved student leader in college where I was an Orientation Leader, Resident Advisor, and international student advisor. It was through these experiences that I realized how much I loved connecting with students and then connecting these same students to resources on campus for success. I look forward to continuing to do that here at Sonoma State where my door is always open so please come by!
