Our Team

luisMy name is Luis Kischmischian, I'm a first generation college graduate. I graduated from Sac State in 2013 in Public Relations, with a minor in Marketing. I am now privileged enough to be able to give back to future Hornets. When I arrived to college, I was considered "not college ready". However, through hard work and determination, I was able to fulfill one of my dreams – graduating college. Even though it took me eight years to graduate, my path gave me the tools I will need to share my story to better prepare students, so that they will arrive to ready and succeed in ways they only dreamed about.

Fun Fact: I visit Disneyland about seven times a year because I am a kid at heart.

Advice for college students: Don't ever be afraid to ask questions because curiosity will lead to greatness.



selMy name is Selena Chiang and I’m extremely excited to be working on this campaign geared towards students’ success here at Sac State. I graduated this past May as a four-year grad from the College of Business Administration, with a concentration in Finance, and will be returning in Fall 2016 as a Higher Education Leadership and Policy Studies graduate student. I’ve always been eager to help people, regardless of what field I am in, to promote their self-worth and encourage them reach their highest potential. I look forward to helping students become “transfer ready” during my time here!

Fun fact: I’ve travelled to 9 different countries.

Advice for college students: Be adventurous and try things outside of your comfort zone. I think that’s what brings out the natural leader in everybody!



dreMy name is Dreon Barlett and in May 2016, I graduated from Sac State in 4 years after being considered “not college ready.” I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and plan to further my education in a master’s program in 2017. As a former member of the Men’s Sac State Basketball Team, I have always loved working collectively with people in order to accomplish goals. I have a tremendous amount of school pride, so I am very excited to be able to work for Sac State and with a new team who is determined to help students become "Transfer Ready".

Fun fact: I have 14 brothers and sisters!

Advice for college students: Procrastination = sleepless nights. To prevent this: stay organized, start early, and remember deadlines.
