After leaving Santa Cruz she graduated from the Saint Mary's Masters of Counseling program, with a focus in Higher Education and Student Affairs ('21). Some of her areas of passion are in developing social justice leadership in her students and self and working within the intersectionality of diverse identities in the LGBTQIA+ community.
