Undergraduate Counseling Staff Members:


Natasha Levy, Undergraduate Student Affairs Manager & Undergraduate Counselor

Education: Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from UC San Diego; Master of Arts in Educational Psychology from UCLA.

About me: I have worked as a Student Affairs Officer at UCLA for over 20 years, in multiple offices on campus, including the Linguistics Department, the School of Public Health, and the School of Theater, Film and Television.  I joined the Economics Department in 2016.  I enjoy helping current and prospective students discover their path.  On a personal note, I enjoy zumba, trying different cuisines, watching film and tv, and hanging with my husband and my two dogs (shih tzus).


Julie Plotkin, Undergraduate Counselor

Education:  Bachelor of Arts in Journalism; Master of Science in Counseling (College Student Services).

About me:  After deciding against becoming a sportswriter and then working in a variety of fields, including in purchasing for a cruise line and public relations, I pursued graduate education in counseling so that I could help students to become aware of the many options that they have, academically and career-wise, and to help them to succeed.  I have worked at both community colleges and at UCLA.  Outside of UCLA, I enjoy college football (the Bruins, in particular), the outdoors, traveling, and exploring all that Los Angeles and Southern California has to offer.


Jessica Fraser, Undergraduate Counselor

Education: Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and Ethnic Studies from UC San Diego; Master of Arts in Higher Education Leadership from the University of San Diego.

About me: I joined UCLA in 2013 after serving as an academic counselor at UC San Diego. I enjoy working with undergraduates and seeing the growth that happens from orientation through graduation.  Outside of work, I enjoy hiking, travelling when I can, going to the movies, and doing almost anything arts and crafts related. Some of the “home-made” decorations in my office are things I’ve made.
