After starting college at Sacramento City College, I transferred to the University of the Pacific with a full tuition scholarship and a major in speech pathology. However, I decided that was not the right career path for me, so a spent a year in a master's program in counseling.
But again, I felt it was not the right career fit. I began working at a community college as an English tutor and felt I had finally found the right spot for me. I earned a master's degree in English and happily began teaching at a community college. I finally felt right at home.
Now, after a career in community college teaching and administration, I am excited be a part of the team working with transfer students as they come into UMass Lowell.
