She began as an RA at the University of New Hampshire and returned to the field in 2013 when she began her degree at the University of the Pacific. She oversaw a building of 250 first-year students and a staff of 11 as a graduate student before joining the CSU system at the California Maritime Academy as a Residential Life Coordinator, where she helped oversee housing operations on the Training Ship Golden Bear. Calee came to Sonoma State as an Area Coordinator in 2017 and has been with the department through a series of challenges including consolidating with the housing operations team, wildfires, campus closures, COVID-19, and staffing reductions.
During her free time, Calee enjoys running, reading, listening to podcasts, and frightening her cat with her singing and dance moves.
