Vanessa Poblano

Assistant To The Associate Vice President For Faculty Affairs
Sonoma State University

​Vanessa Poblano began her journey at Sonoma State University as a firstgeneration college student. During her second year in college she received the opportunity to work as a student assistant in the Human Resources department. At the time, she had no idea this job opportunity would be the start of her career at the university. Once she declared her major as criminal justice, she became the first intern of the Title IX department on campus. Poblano found it to be one of the most rewarding experiences as a student. Shortly after her graduation from the university, she began working in Faculty Affairs, where she still works today. “Sonoma State University has been home for me for the last nine years. I am extremely grateful for all of the growth and the opportunities the university has provided me,” Poblano said. ​​
