Chanae has always had an affinity for Aggies, but not always at UC Davis. As a major in communication and public relations at Utah State University, she became a “true Aggie” when she kissed her (now) husband on top of the “A” monument under a full moon. Participating in her alma mater’s long-standing tradition not only strengthened her Aggie pride, but guided her next steps.

After time spent in marketing and business development and on various international humanitarian projects, Chanae decided to rediscover her Aggie roots. This time, she traded the Utah State Aggies for the Golden State and the California Aggies of UC Davis. 

Chanae admires the ethic of lifelong learning promoted in higher education and is motivated by the people surrounding her who value that principle. She strives to learn more about the evolving world of social media as she works to connect the university with people around the globe. Plus, she finds it far more interesting to talk about other people and their passions than herself.

When she’s not snapping photos or tweeting, you can find Chanae and her husband running or biking the trails in Davis or basking in the California sun.

Memorable moment

Scuba diving in Hawaii, I watched an octopus crawl across the ocean floor while changing colors to camouflage itself with the coral. I’m a fish at heart and the underwater world fascinates me.

Guilty pleasure

Peanut Butter M&MS – BY THE BAG!! (all 1,000 calories per cup)

Random fact
