Greetings CS Department!

While my official title is the Financial and Outreach Coordinator, this title doesn't really do my work justice or even fully explain what I do around here.

In addition to faculty support and financial work, I am a dedicated member and heavily involved in the CS Department Diversity Committee. I meet with our undergraduate student advocates for diversity & inclusion, and health & wellness each week, and provide logistical and administrative support for our diversity commitee and our diversity student groups, WiCS,  Mosaic+ and CS for Social Change. I also meet with our graduate student and faculty committee members every month, and help keep us on track with the many ideas and initiatives we've begun to implement. I am available to meet with any member of the CS community to talk about any questions, concerns, ideas or anything on their mind, related to diversity, inclusion and feelings of belongingness in the department.

My office is Room 460
