Marian graduated from SSU with a BA in Management in 1984. She has worked at the university in various offices since, but found her niche in the Residential Life Office sixteen years ago. When she's not purchasing something or working on the budget she is at home with her family, reading a book, watching a movie, walking, singing her dreams or gardening.
Community Development Coordinator
Hello! I have been working here at Sonoma State University in the Residential Life Office since 2007. I started off as a RLC for Cabernet Village and I am currently the Community Development Coordinator. I oversee and work directly with the Sauvignon CommUNITY Cooperative (Co-op) Program. In addition, I oversee the residential community Service Desks, located in Zinfandel and Tuscany Villages
I am originally from the East Coast but love living in Northern California . My love and passion for working in Residential Life started when I became a Resident Advisor in college. Since then I have had the opportunity to work with some really amazing students. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.
Community Conduct Director
Hi everyone! My name is Jesse Andrews and I am the Community Conduct Coordinator for Residential Life. That means I oversee the student conduct process for the residential community. I am originally from this area and grew up just a few minutes south of Sonoma State. I never expected to return to the San Francisco Bay Area but am so happy I did and am excited to be a part of the SSU team. I am a product of the CSU system myself and earned my B.A. in Elementary Education with a minor in Human Development from San Diego State University (Go Aztecs!). From there I moved to the beautiful Pacific Northwest where I worked professionally and earned my M.A. in Higher Education Administration from Washington State University (Go Cougs!). I am now in my fourth year at Sonoma State, having spent my first three years as a Residential Life Coordinator.
I love to get outdoors and am an avid cyclist and hiker so living in northern California works pretty well for me. I am an Olympics junkie and have been to three different Olympic Games (Beijing 2008, Vancouver 2010, and London 2012). I also love to just relax at home with a book, unless it is Sunday and then football is most assuredly on the TV.
