I’m Cat Ming Hubbard, a Student Services Advisor at UC Berkeley. I’ve worn many hats over the years – advisor, career counselor, instructor, facilitator, and hype woman. No matter the role, I’m ignited by aiding the journey of self discovery and personal fulfillment. My career has led me to positions in nonprofit social services, public sector, higher education, and the tech industry. I’m known for bringing a touch of whimsy and levity to my work, and sometimes an ukulele.
I strive to serve individuals who are disproportionately underrepresented in their fields and industries. Some of my most rewarding work focused on the challenges of women and minorities in tech, people with disabilities, and ex-offenders. I can’t stress enough the necessity of culturally competent services.
In addition to my counseling work, I have a passion community organizing, social justice, and community based participatory research (CBPR) with LGBTQ+ communities.
