“The purpose of my existence is to have a positive influence on others”
I am Jovany J Munoz. I have an Associate of Science degree in Computer Information Systems from Rio Hondo College; a Bachelor of Science degree in Rehabilitation Services; a Master’s degree in Counseling; and a Certificate in Career Counseling from California State University, Los Angeles.
I have 14 years of experience working in community colleges: East Los Angeles, Pasadena, Rio Hondo, Cerritos, and El Camino College. I have served as a General Counselor, a DSPS specialist, and as an Instructor. I encourage, empower, and embrace my student’s differences to motivate them to continue pursuing their academic and personal goals.
My passion as a Counselor at East Los Angeles College (ELAC) is to see my students graduate, transfer to a four-year university, and complete their educational goals.
At ELAC, we are a family. We have strong support from administration and student services departments. To me, representing the General Counseling and the DSPS population fuels me, and I feel rewarded to be part of their college success.
As a Counselor in the DSPS department, we have over 400 students from our program that have been approved through the Department of Rehabilitation (DOR). These students are receiving a free education to pursue a Bachelor and Master degree at the California State University level.
