Assistant Director of Career Coaching and Education - Engineering & The Doerr School of Sustainability

Martha Escalera

Tell us something interesting about your background.

I am a first generation Latina from the Bay Area with the following strengths: developer, connector, and empathy.

What has led you to your current role?

The strong relationships I build with friends, colleagues and mentors have led me to working at Stanford Career Education. I have worked in higher education for over 15 years serving students and families, leading and developing teams of young professionals, working with communities, and coaching college students. Stepping out of my comfort zone and seeking mentors throughout my professional career has helped me stay engaged in higher education.

In your spare time, what do you enjoy doing?

Hiking, drinking coffee, arts and crafts, running, exploring trails, road trips, and watching beach and ocean sunsets.
