CJ Sanchez

As a Career Coach at the University of Washington I  work with recent graduates and current students with any goals that are encompassing educational and professional interests. As well as the generalized support as a Career Coach I will be working with the interest areas of Technology, Data, and Gaming. I’m excited to be a part of your career journey at the University of Washington!

I was born and raised in the small town of Westerly, Rhode Island where I attended the University of Rhode Island for my undergraduate degree in Wildlife and Conservation Biology. After graduating in 2013, I decided to explore the United States and abroad by serving with several AmeriCorps Programs and the Peace Corps. I returned to the United States and started at the University of Washington to complete a Master’s in Higher Education. Some of the biggest focuses in my journey has been to increase equity and inclusion to LGBTQ+ students with a large focus on QTPOC students (Queer/Trans people of color) and the support of Latinx students and communities in their education and beyond. In my free time I like to play rugby with the Seattle Quake community team, play video games, and explore various parts of the city with friends.
