Liz Ergun
Accommodations Coordinator

Liz faces the camera and is smiling with her mouth open. The background is monochromatic and only Liz is saturated. She is sitting on mosaic steps at an angle with large succulents in the background. She has bangs across her forehead, her hair is long, brown, and wavy – she is wearing a black headband and gray t-shirt. Her eyes are blue.

Hello! I’m Liz (she/her), an Accommodations Coordinator at the Office of Accessible Education. I am coordinating services for Deaf and Hard of Hearing students. I look forward to working within the OAE and supporting our students!

I am from Central New Jersey, and never imagined I would end up in California. I have a B.A. in Anthropology from Eastern University in Pennsylvania and a M.Div. (Masters of Divinity) from San Francisco Theological Seminary (PCUSA). I like to spend my free time reading mystery books, and relaxing with my husband (Davin) and dog (Einstein). We spend our evenings playing board games and watching popular SciFi franchises that often begin with “Star” (-Trek, -Wars, -gate).

Hi my name is Marlen (she/her/ella). I am the Student Registration Coordinator for the Office of Accessible Education. My role is to help guide students through registering with our office and answer any questions they may have. I graduated from UC Davis with a degree in Community and Regional Development with an emphasis in community health. I’m very excited to work with the Office of Accessible Education and Student Affairs in their mission to create a supportive environment for students. I am passionate about mental health and hope to become a licensed mental health counselor in the future.

In my free time I enjoy being outdoors and hanging out with my family. I am a foodie, so I love trying new food and restaurants with my friends! I love exploring new music, books, movies/tv shows. I’m always open to any recommendations!

Hi! I’m Sandy Herring (she/her), and I’m an Accommodations Coordinator at the Office of Accessible Education. I coordinate academic accommodations, specializing in recruiting notetakers. I also recruit academic assistants such as visual descriptionists, lab assistants, and other assistants as determined by your Disability Adviser. I’ve worked at Stanford for almost fifteen years at several departments, and recently celebrated my sixth anniversary with the Office of Accessible Education.

I earned my B.A. in Theater at Wichita State University. My first career was theatrical carpentry, and I worked at theaters ranging from the Goodman Theater in Chicago, South Coast Repertory in Orange County, and all over the Bay Area, including San Francisco Opera, Berkeley Repertory Theater, and TheatreWorks (where I met my husband, Bill!). Bill and I live in Sunnyvale and enjoy classic movies, gardening, our cat Calvin and his socially distanced cat friend Hobbes, and bicycling.
