My passion for helping others has never been dull. From voluntarily aiding students with disabilities during my classroom breaks as an elementary school student through middle school, I have always had a strong desire to help others. Today, I am lucky enough to volunteer in the UCSD Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) where I cuddle and soothe pre-term babies, the hospitals tiniest patients.

After graduating from San Diego State University with a Bachelor's Degree in the School of Communication, my professional career truly began. Having 3+ years’ experience in administrative work, 2+ years in sales, and over 1 year as an outdoor instructor, my organizational and communication skills have excelled even further than before! I am a competent communicator and can adapt well to different audiences, varieties of people, and age groups.

My work ethic has always been strong and thought out. I work hard every day and strive to learn as much as I can. I take pride in my organizational skills, work well under pressure, and even gained the nickname ‘busy-bee’ at a young age because I will not lose focus until the job gets done. Having said that, I do know my limits, which I believe is important in order to be both efficient and successful.

Outside of the office, well, you will probably find me outside! I am an avid mountain biker, I enjoy running and hiking, and love rock climbing. Just like my professional career goals, I am intrigued to try new sports and hobbies that I am not familiar with. It keeps it interesting!
