Related Past Work Experience

I have worked in TRIO since the Spring of 2017 and I have been working at Shasta College since the Fall of 2014. As a prior TRIO student and Shasta College alum, I enjoy working in such an uplifting and inspiring atmosphere that pushes me to be my very best self.

Hobbies and Interests

My life basically revolves around my family and my two dogs. I love to travel and explore new places and spend as much time outside as I can. I also love photography, so a lot of my spare time I’m adventuring and taking pictures to capture the moment.
