I'm a graduate student in the Human Factors program at CSULB. I received my BA in Psychology with a minor in applied statistics at Humboldt State University. At Mt. San Antonio College, I received associate degrees in Psychology and Commercial Flight. My goal is to work in the aerospace industry. In my spare time, I enjoy camping, fishing, climbing, and watching basketball.
