You have reached my professional portfolio and past graduate program capstone. My name is Victoria Estrella Worch and I am a student affairs blogger and a former CA community college student life and leadership manager. For those who might not know of the field of student affairs, it is the area on your college and university campus that oversee programs and services outside the classroom. Many of those programs and services include student life, admissions and records, Financial Aid, res life, academic advising, student health center, and much more.
This online portfolio and capstone demonstrates that I mastered the skills and knowledge needed to earn a Masters of Education in College Student Affairs from Azusa Pacific University, May 2008. It also provides an insight into the work I have done on the California Community College campuses of Napa Valley College of Napa and Canada College of Redwood City.
You will find student testimonials describing my leadership and advising style, along with what they learned from me. You will also find my resume, my student affairs philosophy, examples of my work shown under the capstone competencies, and how I am a Strengths Based Educator/Manager- using the excellent personality assessment tool StrengthsQuest/Strengthsfinder 2.0.
The picture above is of the 2011-2012 Associated Students of Canada College. I was their student government advisor and student life and leadership manager from 2010-2014. I’m holding the umbrella, Friends style!
