Mandy joined UCSB in June 2019 as the Department of Communication’s Academic Personnel and Office Coordinator. Her employment background consists of financial services, supervisory roles, and higher education during her many years working for Wells Fargo Bank, financial firms, and Admissions departments in trade schools across Ventura County. She has her Bachelor's Degree in English from California State University Channel Islands and is an avid reader (30-50 books a year). Since childhood, she's possessed a sincere admiration for Lewis Carroll and his most popular work, Alice in Wonderland. She believes in an open-door policy, so please feel free to come by and say hello! Also, if you ever want to make her smile, feel free to speak in “Friends” quotes, sing a Backstreet Boys’ song, send her an image of Tuna (the dog; not the fish), or offer a new book recommendation!
“Which way you ought to go depends on where you want to get to.” - Lewis Carroll
