Academic Advising Programs

Dami Hammer

Faculty Advisement Coordinator & CARE Specialist

Dami is proud to call Academic Advising Programs her “home” away from home. She holds a Master’s Degree in Social Science with an emphasis in Student Services and a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from CSU, Chico. Having raised four great (now grown) sons while completing her degrees, Dami brings a special perspective that helps her understand and relate to the many students she advises. She became a member of the Academic Advising staff in 2005 as a student intern and became a full-time Advisor in 2007. Dami has a passion for helping students reach their goals by ensuring they have the necessary tools and resources to make their dreams a reality. She genuinely loves her work and takes pride and special satisfaction when students overcome temporary setbacks and become successful students and self-sufficient individuals. Dami continues to guide and advise students while fulfilling her role as the Academic Advising Faculty coordinator. Dami enjoys riding her polka-a-dot bike cruiser daily through Bidwell Park to work and boasts that no one has a better commute than she does. She also enjoys hiking, traveling, and photography. However, Dami’s #1 love is spending time with her family and friends.
