Meet our Program Coordinators
Community College Santa Monica College
Bio: I was born and raised in Los Angeles and attended Santa Monica College, where I founded and served as president of the Amnesty International SMC chapter, worked as a peer mentor and tutor for the STEM program, and was treasurer for the Pre-Health Association.
At UCLA, I serve as the external vice president of TransferMed and a mentor for Moorpark College students in the Moorpark College to UCLA Honors Program. I also work in two research labs on campus, studying cognitive neuroscience and ophthalmology. In my free time, I enjoy playing the violin and piano, oil painting, hiking, and spending quality time with family and friends.
As a STOMP Coordinator, I aim to be a resource for both transfer students at UCLA and prospective UCLA transfers by creating a safe space for students to ask questions and connect with one another. I want to act as a source of knowledge, guidance, and support for students to aid them in navigating UCLA and making their transfer experience run more smoothly.
Community College: Palomar College
Minor: Chicano Studies
Bio: Born and raised in San Diego, I transferred from Palomar College with a major in History and a minor in Chicano Studies. While at Palomar College, I was part of the Puente Program, TRIO Student Support Services, and served as the Vice President of Internal Affairs for the Associated Student Government.
While at UCLA, I currently serve as a Bruin Ambassador for UCLA Undergraduate Admission. In my spare time, I enjoy meeting new people, working out, playing soccer with friends, and exploring the many clubs and organizations on campus.
As a STOMP coordinator, I aim to promote higher education to prospective transfer students who are low-income and first-generation. In addition, I hope to strengthen the UCLA transfer community by partnering with other campus resources to provide aid to current transfer students and to serve as mentors to future transfers.
Community College: Irvine Valley College
Bio: I was born and raised in Orange County and am a second-year transfer student from Irvine Valley College (IVC). At IVC, I was involved in the honors program and the speech and debate team.
Currently, I am involved at The Center for Community College Partnerships as a communications assistant. I enjoy traveling, hiking with my dog, and spending time with my family and friends.
As a STOMP Coordinator, I hope to encourage the transfer pathway and help change the stigma surrounding attending community college. This year, I hope I can help transfer students take pride in their accomplishments and create a safe space for transfers to meet each other.
