Personal biography:

I am originally from Mount Vernon, NY. During my time at the University of Delaware, I was initiated into Latinas Promoviendo Comunidad, Lambda Pi Chi Sorority, Inc. Additionally, I was involved in residence life, admissions, and student activities. Upon graduation, I worked in Israel for a gap year program. When I returned, I took my talents to UW-La Crosse to work in Admissions. Then I enrolled as a graduate student at UW-La Crosse and held a graduate assistantship at Western Technical College as the Diversity and Inclusion Coordinator.
