Major: Nursing

About Me

I was born and raised in the Bay Area and have had a lifelong goal of becoming a nurse. I attended Northern Arizona University (NAU) where I completed a Bachelors of Biology and Psychology and where I was introduced to peer mentoring both as a mentee and mentor. This has become a passion of mine and I am excited to join the ranks at Skyline. I began my education at Skyline in 2019 as a way to supplement my education at NAU and to help me pursue an MSN degree.

When I started at Skyline College, I wish I had known:

The importance of self accountability, goal setting, and the numerous communities and resources available to students. The importance of your peers. Peers are an amazing resource who can help you, lift you up, guide you, and can become lifelong friends. Lastly, the immense support of faculty and staff across campus both inside and outside of classroom settings.

3 words to describe me:
  • Ambitious
  • Resourceful
  • Compassionate
My Strengths:
  • Communication
  • Time Management & Organization
  • Computer Literacy
  • Professional Skills (ie speaking, workshops, etiquette)
What I enjoy outside of academics:

I am a person who loves the outdoors: hiking, camping, climbing, or just sitting outside with nature. But when I am not outdoors I love crafts (I started cross stitching this past year), books, and exploring nooks across the Bay.

Programs I'm involved in:

Last semester was my first on campus and I am still finding my place, but I found that I love the STEM and MESA centers.

Major: English

About Me:

I grew up in the Bay Area and I am happy to call Daly City my home. My life goal is to become an elementary school teacher. School was never my strong suit, but my love of learning and desire to educate others led me to this newfound passion of mine. I hope that by setting this goal, I can inspire and encourage others to never give up on themselves.


What I started at Skyline College, I wish I knew…

more knowledge about campus resources and services offered. Things like scholarships, being able to work on campus, getting involved in clubs/internships, and other amazing programs offered by the school. I admire Skyline's ability to make information easily accessible to all students.

Forming close relationships with your professors and classmates is one of the keys to success in college!
