Tressi has been a part of the Pitzer community since 2001. Originally from Hawaii, Tressi attended the University of La Verne where she was active in the Greek life community and worked in the Office of Academic Support and Retention. It was during her undergraduate experience that she knew she wanted to pursue a career in higher education.
After completing her BA in social science at the University of La Verne in 2001, she began her career at Pitzer College and worked in the Office of the Registrar for five years. In 2006, Tressi transitioned over to the Office of Student Affairs as the housing coordinator and feels that it was the best move she ever made. It was during that time that she decided to pursue a Master’s Degree in Education and received her M.A. in Education with an Emphasis in Student Affairs from Claremont Graduate University. Being able to build relationships with students and parents is one of the most rewarding aspects of her job. She feels fortunate to be able to work in an environment that allows her to branch out in various areas in the Student Affairs field.
In addition to her housing responsibilities, Tressi works with the residential life program and summer programs, oversees the Marquis Library, and is also a member of the External Studies Committee and the 5C Residential Life Dean’s Committee.
You will likely interact with Tressi if you have any questions about housing, the Marquis Library, or if you need any other questions answered and you are not quite sure where to go!
