Description of Experience : I have over 20 years experience working in the field of film production and animation. In that capacity I worked closely with college visual and performing arts programs to recruit interns and employees for the production company. I began working at the college counselor for Freestyle Academy, the arts and technology program in the Mountain View-Los Altos High School district in California in 2007 to fill a need when there was no one to counsel the arts-focused students. Since then my practice has grown to include domestic and international students. I have maintained membership in both NACAC and WACAC to support my professional development.
