    Clarissa Valencia was born and raised in northeast Los Angeles, and resides in Alhambra, CA. She discovered her love for student affairs and spirituality while majoring in the Study of Religion at UCLA. From there, she attended Cal Poly SLO, where she researched the Muslim student experience, and completed a Masters in Counseling and Guidance for Higher Education. She also interned at USC’s Office of Religious Life where she focused her efforts on implementing workshops for discovering meaning and purpose in careers. She began her professional career at Southwestern Law School followed by Mount Saint Mary’s University’s in Los Angeles. She is currently focusing on bridging the gap between the inner lives of college students who identify as “spiritual but not religious” and their outer lives at universities. Her goal is to help all Light workers, metaphysical believers, Star Seeds, crystal experts, energy healers, law of attraction creators, and unchurched spiritual followers in college strengthen their spiritual voice.
