As a Career Advisor, I am passionate about helping students identify meaningful careers and feel empowered to navigate the career exploration and development process. Prior to higher education, I worked in non-profit and corporate settings, and eventually discovered my love for counseling & advising through my own career exploration journey. Not knowing what you want to do for the rest of your life is more common than you might think, and I am excited to be helping SSU students build the knowledge, tools and resources to help answer that question (or at least begin to!). I am originally from Castro Valley, and now live in Santa Rosa with my wife. I love hiking and jogging, interior design, conversations about social justice and equity, and spending time with family and friends.
