Hello, my name is Breeanna Maldonado, and I am overjoyed to join the UFC family. I am a first-generation college student. I attended California State University Northridge (CSUN), receiving my Bachelor’s in Psychology. After completing my undergrad, I earned a Master of Science in Leadership in higher education from Pepperdine University. While at Pepperdine, I created a program for families of children with exceptionalities to help them gain the academic and emotional support to enter higher education. I enjoy creating partnerships with youth in my community to reach their educational goals. My passion for supporting students began at Los Angeles Mission College. Working within the Extended Opportunity Program and Services (EOP&S), I learned about different resources and programs to support my students’ academic journey. When I am not working, I will be enjoying the beach and attending extracurricular activities!
