About Momo 

Momo works in DOS to help coordinate campus response regarding support for students. As a Stanford alum, Momo understands that resource navigation at Stanford can be complicated, and strives to simplify support for students seeking help. During their time as an undergraduate at Stanford, Momo explored various academic programs including Human Biology and Product Design, and ultimately double-majored in Music, as well as Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity (CSRE). Their honors thesis in CSRE focused on the role of creative music in identity formation for contemporary Japanese American musicians and communities. Momo also served the Stanford community as a residential staff member at Toyon, then at Terra, and worked as a Consent & Communication peer educator with the former SARA office, now the SHARE Title IX office. Momo is particularly committed to incorporating trauma-informed practices to every aspect of student services work, especially as it applies to historically under-resourced or undervalued communities. Momo also has a strong interest in art, music, movement, and theatre as vehicles of personal and community healing.     

After graduating from Stanford, Momo worked as a Health Educator with Health Connected for 3 years, teaching comprehensive sexual health education to middle and high school students across the Bay Area, as well as to students across California through distance learning during the pandemic. They continue to work for Health Connected as their in-house illustrator. Momo is also trained as a Domestic Violence Counselor and Japanese Language Advocate for the Asian Women’s Shelter. 

Outside of their day job, Momo is a musician of the “jack of all trades” variety and especially loves playing in musical pit orchestras. They also continue to be involved with queer Japanese community. However, at the end of the day, Momo’s favorite thing to do is napping with their two cats, Felix and Juniper.
