I am a former member of the Admissions Reader Team at Stanford University, where I obtained my Masters of Education and teaching credential. I completed my College Counseling Certification at the University of California, San Diego. I thoroughly enjoy working with students of all ages, and I have taught in both Japan and California. Coaching students to help them discover their passions and showcase their talents makes my job truly rewarding. For the past years, I worked at Google in various capacities, most recently running marketing, communications, and project management for the Google Ad Grants team. Before working at Google, I obtained my B.A. in Anthropology from the University of California, Los Angeles. I grew up playing soccer and volunteering in sunny San Diego.
In my spare time, I enjoy getting outdoors, whether it be hiking in the mountains, running at the beach, or cycling through vineyards. I also enjoy painting, crafting, reading, practicing yoga, and spending quality time with my friends and family.
