The results are in! Please join me in welcoming this year's UCSD Veterans Staff Association Board Members. Please feel free to reach out to any one of our board members to ask a question or bring up an idea that will benefit our veteran community.

I proudly served 4 years of active duty & 2 years reserves in the US Air Force. I am a Disability Specialist for the Office for Students with Disabilities at UC San Diego and I assist students with disabilities. Supporting our student veterans and military-affiliated is an honor and important to me. I look forward to serving military veterans, service members, and military-affiliated in our community and at UCSD.

Hi! I served in the U.S. Army for 4 years. Now, I serve as the Program Specialist for the Student Veterans Resource Center. Staying connected to the veteran community has helped me tremendously in more ways than one and I hope to do the same for others. Working with veterans is an honor and I hope to continue doing so for a long time to come.
I’m an IT manager at UC San Diego, aspiring writer, retired Sailor, husband, father, and regularly unsuccessful fisherman living in suburban San Diego. In the Navy, I served 21 years as a surface warfare officer in active and reserve billets, afloat and ashore, with multiple deployments throughout Asia and the Middle East, and retired out of the reserves in 2015. Supporting and helping veterans of all eras helps me keep a sense of mission.

I'm an intern at EPARC in UC San Diego and a Spanish interpreter for the UCSD Free Clinic, I hope to serve as an aid to those who served in the armed force. I am pursuing a career in the medical field as a physician where I can provide care to under-represented communities.
