Hello OMI community. I have been working at OMI now for three years. I currently lead our College and Career team here on campus as the College and Career Coordinator and Scholarship Manager. I also advise both 11th and 12th graders. I am a proud Oakland native. It is my greatest pleasure to serve our students and the broader OMI community with honesty, integrity, advocacy and professionalism. I am elated and so honored that I get to do what I do. I have always been passionate about helping transitional age youth and I have been fortunate enough to do so for the past 7 years and I absolutely love it. Prior to OMI, I served as a Case Manager at Rancho San Antonio Boys Inc, a placement center that serves at risk youth on probation. This work taught me plenty about myself and even more about what it means to be a present, strong, and competent resource for our youth. This has inspired me to pursue higher heights personally and professionally everyday. I am thrilled to be apart of the OMI team and I look forward to many more years of successful and purpose driven work.
