Admissions Counselor


As an Admissions Counselor for the KSOE, I especially enjoy working with students to help them achieve their goals. I love the outdoors, and feel extremely lucky to live in California where I can enjoy both the beach and the mountains. Before coming to St. Mary's, I was a firefighter, a preschool teacher and a stay-at-home parent.

Admissions Counselor


After earning a BA in Psychology from UC Berkeley, I was excited to become a part of the Saint Mary's community because of the student-centered approach to education. I have a passion for helping students find the program that best fits their educational and career goals. I enjoy reading, going to concerts, and spending time with family and friends. I look forward to connecting with you!
