Providing the Educational Opportunities that Change Lives

Courtney Arguello

College Coach
Courtney Arguello

My name is Courtney Arguello and I am a College Coach for the College and Alumni Program at Making Waves. I was born and raised in the Bay Area, and after attending two years at the College of Marin, I transferred to UC San Diego, where I obtained my BA in Sociology in 2011. Upon graduation, I pursued my Master’s Degree in Sport Management from the University of San Francisco. I began my career working in higher education at UC Irvine, where I spent two years as an Academic & Life Skills Coordinator for student-athletes. In 2014, I returned home to the Bay Area and began working as a Program Assistant for my alma mater, the Sport Management Master’s Program at the University of San Francisco. In both of these positions, my priority has been to serve as a resource to students as they navigate their way academically, personally, and professionally through college. I am a strong believer in the power of education, and am dedicated to helping Wave-Makers discover what drives their own passions throughout their educational experience and beyond!
