A little about me...

I live in Temecula, California and I spend my weekdays venturing down to CSUSM (pre-Covid) to engage with students in my role as Admissions Advisor for the Office of Admissions and Registrar. On a typical weekend, you can find me reading on the beach or writing on my laptop with a matcha latte by my side. When I’m not engrossed in literature, I pass the time by sampling great food (mostly sushi), playing video games, and watching Marvel Movies.

Advice for First-Year Students

Conduct a self-assessment from time-to-time and ask three key questions. Am I wasting time? Am I wasting an opportunity? And Lastly, the most important of all, “am I wasting my potential?”
