For the past three and a half years, Aulin has been the Campus Ombuds for the University of California in Santa Barbara and was an Associate Ombuds for five years before that. Aulin starts in January 2016 and will need to hire an Associate Ombuds and support staff member.
Aulin became a Certified Organizational Ombuds Practitioner in 2011. Before becoming an Ombuds, she worked in the mental health field since 1996. She graduated from Bryn Mawr College and earned an M.S. in Counseling Psychology from California State University at Northridge.
