Chiara Paz

I am a Bruin through and through – I attended UCLA for my undergraduate degree in Psychology and graduate degree in Education.  I’ve enjoyed working with college students since my days as a peer mentor in Los Angeles City College and have continued to work in various university advisory positions for the past 17 years. Prior to joining the Economics department in February 2017, I served as the advisor for the joint Master’s and teaching credential program in the UCLA Graduate School of Education & Information Studies.

I graduated from UC Davis with a Bachelor’s in Anthropology and minor in Sociology. While at UC Davis, I served as a peer advisor in the Anthropology Department and worked in the Office of University Registrar; both positions provided me with a plethora of knowledge and experience working with undergraduate students. I recently received Master’s Degree in Psychology in April 2021. I’ve been working at UCLA since 2014, with experience in finance, programming, events, and recruitment.
