Why did you join the LKC?

I wanted to get connected to other Latinx professionals in the field. I've been raising my family and now I am at a point that I want to become more professionally connected, especially with individuals that I feel I can benefit from professionally as well as also give back to in return.

Why did you choose your higher ed career path?
space

I always knew that I wanted to work with individuals on how they could better their circumstances and encouraging them to work towards their goals. I wanted to do so by working with teenagers and realized through internships that my passion was working with college students. I find it rewarding to experience the journey a student may take and how it's different for everyone.

Share with us a fun fact. It can be silly, funny, random, or anything you want to make it.

If I was not in higher education I would be a holistic chef. I love food, cooking and studying wellness. Food heals the body. It's my passion on the side but is very time consuming! So for now, I work in higher education!
