Jessika Herrera

Jessika Herrera is the inaugural manager for undergraduate student services in the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health. She has over 10 years of experience in academic advising at UCLA, including departmental and College advising. Jessika believes the purpose of advising is to empower students to own their educational experiences. Good advising does not give students answers, but encourages them to consider their options and make informed decisions. The thing she values most about working with students is establishing meaningful, professional relationships.

Current and prospective Public Health majors and minors can contact Jessika directly for individualized support.
