¡Bienvenidxs! I have the great privilege to serve as your EOP Counselor and provide academic counseling services for personal, social, financial and academic issues. In my role as Coordinator, I also design, implement and evaluate cultural and academic programs for the Chicanx Latinx Cultural Resource Center (CLCRC) and El Centro de Arnulfo Casillas/Building 406. The CLCRC Peer Mentors and I strive to create an environment that celebrates and promotes the history, contributions, intellectual heritage, education and growth of Latinx students.
I was born and raised in South Los Angeles, CA. After high school, I attended UC Santa Cruz where I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Legal Studies. I am the first in my family to attend college. Although I intended on going to law school, I found my true passion of working with students and increasing college access and degree attainment for students of color. I received my Masters of Education in Educational Counseling from USC. My family and mentors have always taught me the importance of resilience and lifting others as you forge your path, I look forward to making this happen and working with students at UCSB!
