Resident Director, Apartments
As a first generation college student, the world of Student Affairs helped make my college experience outside of the classroom a memorable one, so much that I dreamed of one day doing the same for future students. I obtained my bachelors in Psychology from Concordia University Irvine and soon after was accepted into a masters program at Azusa Pacific University where I earned my degree in College Counseling in Student Development. My degree in higher education prepared me for my first full time job in student affairs as a resident director at Concordia University Irvine. I now call Chapman my home and I am excited to help panthers achieve success inside and outside the classroom. In my spare time, you can find me working out, exploring the outdoors, and participating in obstacle racing.
Resident Director, Pralle-Sodaro Hall
I grew up in Colorado where I attended the University of Northern Colorado for theatre education. Through my work as a Resident Assistant and an Orientation Leader at UNCO, I discovered my passion in working with college students and supporting students in their transition throughout the college experience. I pursued my Masters of Education in Student Affairs at the University of California, Los Angeles where I worked as a student organizations advisor. I was eager to return to Residence Life, and Chapman University feels like the perfect fit. I am excited to be a part of such a close-knit and enriching community as a Panther! Although I miss my family and Colorado’s unique beauty, I am happy to have found a new home in Orange. You can find me cheering on the Denver Broncos, cooking, trying new restaurants, checking out live music, and binge-watching too many Netflix shows.

Residence Life for me began when I was in my undergraduate career at William Jessup University in Rocklin, California near Sacramento working as a Resident Assistant. Since graduating, I have had the opportunity to serve as a Resident Director at Lindsey Wilson College in Kentucky, and dorm facility in Chico, California. Currently, I am finishing my Master of Student Development and Counseling at Indiana Wesleyan University. Some of my hobbies include, hiking, camping, board games, movies, and anything to do with traveling and exploring. I am very excited to be here at Chapman and to work with some great students.

Though originally from Oceanside, California, I attended Boise State University up in Idaho for my BA in Organizational and Relational Communication. After graduation, I decided to pursue my passion of working with college students and ended up at the University of Tennessee where I worked in Student Engagement and recently graduated with my Masters in College Student Personnel. I’m very excited to be back in Southern California working at Chapman University to help create a unique and personalized Panther experience for every student! In my free time I can be found exploring new places, singing along at local concerts, going to the movies, and cheering on my favorite college sports teams.

Resident Director, Panther
Panther Village Clubhouse
As a first generation college student, I struggled through my first year of college. My first experience in leadership was at California State University San Bernardino where I became a Resident Assistant. The position helped me grow and I had a lot of mentors that made sure I stuck to the right path. Every day I was grateful for all the help they provided me. I eventually wanted to make the same impact with my residents and that’s when I found out about student affairs. It seemed like a place that I could make a true difference in people’s lives. I graduated from CSUSB with two English Degree’s, one in Creative Writing then the other in Linguistics. Afterwards, I began my graduate studies work at University of the Pacific where I had a graduate assistantship as a Resident Director. After two years of hard work I graduated from Pacific while still searching for my next home. I was able to interview with Chapman University and knew that this was the place for me. It is somewhere that I can make a large impact on a community but be accepted for my style of leadership and who I am. After work you can find me reading, writing, and catching up on the tv shows I watch.
