    Phone: (831) 459-3969
    Email: sasanche@ucsc.edu

    I have been a UCSC CRE since 2008, and a Crown CRE since the Fall of 2011.  As an undergraduate I attended UCLA and the University of Montana, while as a graduate student I attended UC Santa Cruz, receiving my Masters of Literature in the Spring of 2009. I thoroughly enjoy working at the Crown community, both within the CMA apartments, but also within the college as a whole.  Though not even incidentally talented, I can usually be found dancing at OPERS when not working with the dazzling contingency of Crownies to be found here on top of the hill. A devout believer that everyone should own at least one pair of fabulous red shoes, I remain readily available for any Crown (or dance) related questions that you may have :)
