Sociology Undergraduate Advisors

 

Caroline Herrod

I graduated from UC Davis with a BA in Psychology and later completed my MA in Career Development. After working at a career center at another higher education institution for ten years, in 2015 I returned to UC Davis and joined the ANT, ME/SA, SOC advising team. I truly enjoy my work with students, and I am passionate about seeing them reach their goals. When I am not at work, I enjoy cooking (especially baking!), reading, and relaxing with my partner and cat family.

I've been an advisor in our advising office since 2014 and have 13 years of overall academic advising experience at UC Davis. I'm also a UCD alumni and graduated with a BS in Managerial Economics! After realizing I wanted to pursue academic advising, I completed my master's in counseling with a specialization in career counseling at Sacramento State. Therefore, I have specific enthusiasm for helping students navigate their academic and career goals by making meaningful connections between their unique interests, values, and skills. For self-care outside of work, I enjoy cooking, listening to true crime podcasts and Broadway musical soundtracks, and planning new places to travel next (once we can again) with my husband and 3 year old son.

I joined the advising team in March 2019, and have seven years of experience in the functional area of university housing and residential education, with a focus on academic support. I am also a UC alum, I received my B.A in Psychology from UC Merced and M.A. in Higher Education and Student Affairs from New York University. I enjoy helping students navigate college and supporting your academic success. Outside of work, I am often playing video games, reading or watching mystery/crime/supernatural/fantasy books and shows, and spending quality time with my husband and our two cats.

Dez Aceves

Hi all! I'm a proud second year transfer student from Mt.SAC, located in Southern California. My emphasis is social services, and I plan to minor in Chicano/a/x Studies. Outside of school, I love listening to oldies, collecting vinyl records, cooking, and creating digital art. I'm overjoyed to be one of your peer advisors this year and look forward to meeting you all during drop-ins!

I am a third year double major in Sociology and Economics. My emphases are social services and public policy. Some campus activities I'm a part of are the Spokes, UC Davis' Premier All Female A Cappella group and Project RISHI. When I'm not working or at school, I really enjoy reading, watching the Great British Bake Off, and listening to comedy podcasts! I am really excited to be a peer advisor this year and meeting as many of my peers as possible.
