Carlos Ochoa

I am a current student at California State University San Marcos.  I have four years completed with two more years of school left to graduate with a Human Development degree and a Spanish Minor.  I prolonged my graduation by a year due to the study abroad program to Barcelona for next year Fall 2016.  My goal is to become a Registered Nurse and going to analyze all my options to reach my goal.  My position in the HOPE and Wellness Center is the Marketing Coordinator.  I have a Red Nose albino Pit bull that I named Novocain.  I am an extroverted individual who likes to party at the same time practice safe party techniques and encourage others to be aware of the signs of alcohol poisoning, sexual harassment, and not to drive under the influence. 

Rebecca Ortego

Rebecca is a Kinesiology major at Cal State San Marcos and will graduate in May of 2017. While at school she enjoys being part of student life by participating in all things related to health and student advocacy. In her free-time she enjoys exploring San Diego, camping, and hiking with her family.

OliviaOlivia de Paul

My name is Olivia DePaul and I'm a Junior studying Psychology here at CSUSM.   My goal is to obtain a PhD in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis on Neuropsychology, which would allow me to diagnose and develop treatment plans for individuals with neurological disorders and traumatic brain injuries.  I am Vice President of Active Minds, a student organization aimed at decreasing the stigma surrounding mental health issues, and am very grateful for the opportunity to continue my work with mental health awareness through my position as a Hope & Wellness Intern.  I love film photography, animals (I have two cats, fish and a dog), reading, and everything music related.  I so look forward to meeting you all and engaging with more students on campus - go Cougars

Cayla Doull

       Hello all! My name is Cayla Doull and I am in my last semester at Cal State San Marcos. I will be graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and plan on getting a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. I love spending time with my friends and family, going on hikes, going to the beach, playing with puppies, dancing like no one’s watching, singing, exploring new places, and much more! I am always down for a good time and love to be surrounded by positivity. As I mentioned before, I am aspiring to become a Marriage and Family therapist, and what geared me toward this career is the fact that I love helping people. There is no better feeling than having someone there for you when times get tough, and it is important to provide a support system for yourself. It is even more important to live a positive life that brings you happiness and joy. I hope that in the future I can bring those things to my patients and any person that crosses my path. Love the life you live and always strive to be the best person you can be!

Hi Cougars, my name is Nicole and I'm a senior who will graduate in May. I will receive a Human Development degree with my emphasis being in Children's Services. I am passionate about Stress Management, Women's Health, Student Athletes, and Type 1 Diabetes. I have been a type 1 diabetic for almost 7 years and hope to help others with this disease. On campus I am the president of the women's lacrosse club, am involved in my sorority, AOII and have loved being apart of TLC, Kappa Omicron Nu, and other organizations on campus. I am so excited to serve this campus during my last semester!

Craig Sherman

My name is Craig Sherman and I am an intern here at the Hope and Wellness Center. I’m a graduating senior this year and will be graduating as a double major in Criminal Justice Studies and Sociology. Upon graduating college I plan to enter into the non-profit world working with the homeless veteran population here in San Diego. At some point later in life I plan on going back to school and obtaining a post-graduate degree. I hope to see you all at our tables during U-Hour here on campus and at the various events that we will be hosting throughout the semester.
