A California native, Maile has spent her life enjoying what the "Golden State" has to offer in terms of a sunny living and an education. Through her B.A. degree studies in Sociology and Education at the University of California, Irvine, her involvement within various college campus co-curricular activities, as well as working in a K-12 educational setting post-college, Maile decided to pursue a M.A. in Higher Education and Student Affairs at the University of San Francisco in order to learn, understand, and act on how best to support and advocate for students. Maile's educational and work experiences have provided her with a solid grounding for how to be a servant leader for students, staff, and faculty, which led her to Stanford University in 2015. Maile worked at Stanford's Department of English as a Student Services Specialist for two years before making the leap to Stanford Global Studies' Program in International Relations. She looks forward to continuing to support undergraduates in their academic careers at Stanford. In spaces beyond work, Maile enjoys spending time with family and friends, venturing to yummy food destinations, attempting to bake, and traveling when time permits.
