Ivette joined Vistamar School in fall 2022. Before joining the Admissions team at Vistamar, she was an Assistant Director at UCLA Undergraduate Admission. In this role, she specialized in college advising and admission evaluation. Ivette’s work has revolved around helping students in Northern and Southern California pursue higher education goals from both the high school student and transfer student level. She is excited to make the transition to independent school admissions.
As a first-generation college student, Ivette attended University of California, Santa Barbara and earned a B.A. in Chicana and Chicano Studies. She is currently working on an M.A. in Diverse Community Development Leadership from California State University, Northridge.
When Ivette is not building connections with students and their families, she enjoys spending time outdoors, traveling, and spending time with her loved ones.
