Yer Thao

SI & STAR Center Coordinator

Pronouns: she/her/hers


Welcome to our program! I am a proud, “hard-core” Wildcat because I earned both my BA in Liberal Studies and my MA in Public Administration from Chico State. Born in Laos and raised in the Butte County area, I love and embrace all of my intersecting identities (immigrant, Hmong-American, bilingual, low-income and first-generation - just to name a few) for these identities and experiences ignites my passion for student advocacy, student support and student success. I love reading, yoga, FOOD, hikes through beautiful sceneries, and spending time with my husband and two beautiful daughters. Email me anytime with questions, concerns or feedback. We embrace the Growth-Mindset Motto and we look forward to working, learning and growing with you all. Go Wildcats!!!
