I'm proud to lead a small, but remarkably creative and powerful team that supports CSUN and the Division of Student Affairs. I'm passionate to stand behind my colleagues, to help them deliver unique online services that help our students achieve their goals. I believe a fun and creative working environment is key to building an effective team, and I always look for ways to empower my staff to consider alternate ways of getting things done. The small part I play in making CSUN's services available to everyone is a key driver in everything I do.
