Karla is the Administrative Support Coordinator and often, the initial point of contact in the Office of the Student Ombudsman. She started working as a student assistant for the office in 1998 while completing her degree at SDSU and has since continued working as a staff member of the campus community. Karla obtained a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and a Master's of Arts degree in Postsecondary Educational Leadership with a Specialization in Student Affairs from San Diego State University in 2001 and 2009 respectively.

She enjoys working with the students and members of the University community that contact the Student Ombudsman’s Office seeking assistance, directions to the appropriate department on campus, or just need to “vent” away their frustration.

Karla also serves as the Student Grievance Committee Secretary.

Who does the Office of the Student Ombudsman report to?

Our office is in the Student Affairs division, and reports to the Office of the Vice President of Student Affairs. However, this does not change the fact that we are an independent office that maintains confidentiality and neutrality.
