William earned a BA in English from Florida International University in 2008. He later returned to school to pursue an MBA, which he earned from Nova Southeastern University in 2014. In 2016, William joined the University of Miami, Miller School of Medicine as a Program Coordinator/Manager for various PhD programs and a newly approved Master’s. In 2019, William, his then-fiancé Jessica, and their dog Gilly moved to Northern California, where William served as an Associate Director for the Graduate School of Management at UC Davis. William transitioned to UC Berkeley in 2022, where he now serves as the Director of Student Services for the Department of Mechanical Engineering. Since moving to Northern California, William and Jessica married, adopted a German Shepherd named Karl (much to Gilly’s chagrin), and welcomed their daughter Penélope Flora to the world.
