Our SHPE 2020-2021 Board


Alyssa Rendon

President | [email protected]

I'm a 4th-year CPE student at Sac State. I has been heavily involved with SHPE since my freshman year and served 1 term as Communications Executive/Secretary and is now President for the 2020-2021 school year. I have also served on CSUS’s Engineering and Computer Science Joint Council as social chair and now secretary. I have interned in multiple industries from aerospace defense, utility, and state departments. I worked with Pacific Gas and Electric as an iOS developer intern over the summer. I am now working with California Complete Counts as a GIS Student Assistant. In my free time, I likes to hang out with my friends, fix computers, and research retro video games.

I am a CPE student at Sac State. I transferred from San Joaquin Delta College last year. I have been involved with SHPE since Fall 2016. I served as Treasurer and President while attending SJDC. I collaborated with the University of Pacific to create a Dia de Ciencias as the Publicity Chair. I am looking forward to working with everyone this year.

Mary Mendoza

Communcations Executive | [email protected]

Hi my name is Mary Mendoza. I am a 3rd year computer science student here at Sacramento State. I have been a part of SHPE since my freshman year and I am excited to be your communications executive for this year. Other than being involved with SHPE, I work at a vegan restaurant in midtown and volunteer as a STEM tutor to high schoolers. When I get some free time I like to hang out with friends, play video games, and bake. Please contact me if you have any questions, concerns or if you just want my Nintendo switch friend code!

Mar Ambriz

Treasurer | [email protected]Good morning! I am yet another Computer Engineering student, currently a 3rd year, on the Exec Board at Sacramento State. I joined SHPE my freshman year and found so many great friends/peers that helped me create a home away from home. I am also currently the Social Chair for Sacramento State's Engineering & Computer Science Joint Council and member of the Joint Latinx Council. I enjoy being involved in campus programs so other freshman/transfer students are able to find their own familia like me. Aside from being a non-binary STEM student, I enjoy cooking traditional dishes, being in nature, and sending too many memes to my friends. I am available to answer any questions about school, exchange recipes, or send a wholesome meme.
