My Greatest Supporters

My greatest supporters have been my family and friends, mentors, teachers and managers from jobs I've had along the way. They have all extended so much support to me. I send a special thank you to each of them.

Favorite Saint Mary's Memory

My favorite Saint Mary's memory was taking the Group Theory and Practice class and presenting on existential theory. I ended up using this experience to publish my master's project a year later. Also, in my opinion, my group and professor were amazing.

My Next Chapter

Professionally, I want to begin my work in the field of career counseling. I'd also like to begin to travel internationally again. The worldwide pandemic has placed many in difficult circumstances. I hope my career would allow me to help in the reconstruction efforts of jobs lost during COVID-19.

Clubs and Activities

Asian and Pacific Islander Cultural Awareness Week and Performance Night- Intercultural Center
