Advising Specialty:  Anthropology, Geography, GIS, History, Political Science, & Psychology


Chandra’s work in higher education began as a student employee at Boise State, serving in several roles including Office Specialist and peer advisor. She learned through her jobs as an advisor that her heart was set on working with students in a college setting. She joined the College of Western Idaho team in February 2015 as a One Stop Specialist and moved into an Academic Advisor role in August 2016. She loves that she has been able to take her passion for working with students and turn it into a career. One of the things she enjoys most about working at CWI is interacting with a very diverse student population and community.

A proud Air Force brat, Chandra made the move back across the pond from England to Mountain Home just in time to start third grade and has called Idaho home ever since. She lives in Boise with her husband and their quirky pup Oliver. Outside of work she loves to read, spend time with friends and family, volunteer with her church’s nursery, and hone her cooking skills by trying new recipes.
