My favorite thing about Bethel University

I love the mission to advance the kingdom through academics, and the transformative component I've seen in students' education at Bethel.

My favorite things about San Diego and life

I grew up in San Diego. Aside from the sunny weather, my favorite part about San Diego is that majority of my family is local, and I get to spend time with them in the beautiful city I call home.  

My favorite thing about being a Student Success Advisor

I really enjoy encouraging students in the abilities they already possess.  Our students are awesome!  Coming alongside them throughout their degrees personally encourages me.

Before working at Bethel

Before starting at Bethel in 2015 as an enrollment counselor, I worked several jobs while completing my undergraduate degree in Orange County. Some of these include nanny, barista, and mental health worker.
