Q: How long have you been in student media?
A: 6 years

Q: What are you most proud of at your current Student Media org?
A: I am incredibly proud of how our Daily Titan team pulled together in 2020 and retained our business despite incredibly difficult circumstances. More than that, we were able to maintain a sense of work ethic and positive morale while working remotely for 18 months!

Q: What is a fun fact about you, your town, your University?
A: I have played soccer almost my entire life and have been playing on the Black Widows (a women’s recreational soccer team) for 16 years. The city motto of Placentia, CA is “A pleasant place to live” (and after living her for more than 20 years, I would have to say it is). The “First Intercollegiate Elephant Race in Human History” was held at CSUF in 1962. This is where our mascot, Tuffy the Titan, derived its name.  

Q: What is a media project you would most like to pick someone’s brain about?
A: I would love to know more about student micro-influencer marketing.

Q: What is your favorite snack on a road trip?
A: Red Vine
