Raymond joined the Oxy Financial Aid team in 2021. Raised in California's south bay, he enjoys spending time at the beach and seeking out amazing food. During his time at Cal State Long Beach he developed both a passion and appreciation for higher education and has spent the past 8 years working in Financial Aid. Nothing gives him greater professional satisfaction than seeing students thrive and achieve their goals throughout their academic careers. When he's not working with students Raymond enjoys cheering for his beloved Lakers and getting wrapped up in new movies, television shows and books!
