Meet  Our Staff:

Hello my name is Dr. Henan L. Joof I am the Dean of Student Services at Los Angeles Trade Technical College. Thank you for visiting the Bridges to Success Center website, we are here to help you build your path to success.   My journey into higher education started when I enrolled at Glendale Community College as an International Student. It was there, at a community college just like this one that I got the foundation and assistance I needed to achieve all the goals I eventually set for myself.   I transferred to California State University of Northridge and earned my Bachelors in Economics and went on to work at Glendale Community College a Student Outreach Services Coordinator. I was determined to give back to a college and system that had done so much for me.  Through my educational journey I developed my passion for advocating for students and providing students with positive educational experiences. With that as my driving force and passion I continued my education at University of Southern California earning my Master’s and Doctorate degrees in High Education.  Feel free to stop me if you come across me on campus and email me if there is anything I can help you with.

Student Services Assistant
IbarraS@lattc.edu

Hello my name is Sylvia Ibarra I am a Student Services Assistant at LATTC. Welcome to Los Angeles Trade Technical College, we are excited to help you succeed in and outside of the classroom. As a former ESL and Community College student I am passionate about creating systems that provide access and empower students. I am responsible for providing leadership in the planning, development and implementation of the programs and services offered by the Bridges to Success Center.

Furthermore I oversees K-12 Concurrent Enrollment and coordinate strategic partnerships with over thirty middle and high schools. I work closely with multiple CBO partners to implement and organize a number of grant funded programs and promote campus-wide initiatives including support services for specialized populations such as immigrant and disengaged youth as well as on-boarding for all students. At the core of everything I do I live by this simple yet powerful motto “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel”.

Student Support Services Representative
BarahoNL@lattc.edu

My name is Norma Barahona. I am a Student Support Service Representative here at the Bridges to Success office for the last seven years. I’ve been aiding k-12 applicants and new students by providing them the necessary steps needed to enroll. I find it rewarding to assist students, learn about their success stories, and finally see them graduate. Having had previous experience as a program assistant at Los Angeles Southwest College, I was able to get a sense of the success that can be created through a helping hand. At Southwest, my primary focus was directed towards ESL (English as a Second Language) learners providing both outreach and preparing students to pass their Citizenship interview. Rewarding and enriching, I was able to discover my passion for helping students through the educational system.

BilbreB@lattc.edu

Hi my name is Betty Bilbrey-Velasquez, I have been working for LATTC since February 2015 in the Bridges to Success Office as a Student Services Support Representative. I have been working for the LACCD since 2007,  originally at ELAC as a student worker in Contract Education and gradually moved up to SFP Technician with the Foundation Office, I later was hired at Los Angeles Southwest College working for two departments which were the Passage Program and Freshman Year Experience also as a SFP Technician. Since coming to LATTC I have really expanded my knowledge on the onboarding process for new, continuing, returning, and prospective students. I try to ease anxieties especially for new and returning students who are nervous coming back to school by giving them information they need towards their student success.
