I joined Menlo School’s college counseling team in 2015. Prior to Menlo, I was a college counselor at Mercy and Del Mar High Schools, did college advising through UC Berkeley’s College Access program, and compiled research for the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Development.

In my free time, you can find me lauding Bay Area sports teams (I am a native), entertaining friends and neighbors, attempting yoga, traveling, and scoping out the local restaurant scene. I reside in San Jose with my husband, Matt, and golden retriever, Stella.
