Career development: not just my job, it’s my passion. I love helping college students recognize their abilities, explore options and launch their careers. I love enlisting employer’s interest and advocating for how UVM can help. Why? In college, I was a lower income Latina, unsure of what I wanted and lacking family or personal connections. I was undecided forever, but by following my heart ended up with majors in English and Psych, and a career helping others. Eventually I earned a master’s in college student services and a doctorate in leadership. I’ve also worked in leadership development, legislative research and human resources. For fun I hang out with family and friends or spend time in nature. When my kids get older, I hope to return to hang-gliding, SCUBA diving and traveling.
