I am a lifelong learner and have a passion in assisting others to achieve their goals. I also participate in the UCSF Vocal Chords a cappella club, show photography at the annual UCSF Art Show, and love spending time in the Makers Lab creating and tinkering with new creative projects.

OEIS is an exciting and innovative team that provides many services to faculty, students and staff. I love being in a collaborative, innovative and engaged environment. By working together, we truly achieve the ultimate success.
