About Me: I am a recent graduate of Concordia University Irvine in 2012. I was born in Riverside, California, but grew up in San Diego. I lived on campus all four years and worked various positions including Screaming Eagles Coordinator, Web Team/Marketing, Graduate/Undergraduate ambassador, intramural sports referee and a few professors’ personal assistant. Concordia University has invested in me so much the past four years and I have grown spiritually, mentally and academically that I have an amazing opportunity to give back as an admissions counselor for Concordia University Irvine.

How would you describe the atmosphere of Orange County, California?
The atmosphere of Orange County is fast paced, active and vibrant. You will never find yourself bored with all of the beaches, shopping, and entertainment close by.
