 Advising Philosophy: As a member of the advising team in the CHC, I strive to act in allyship and recognize that social justice work is a lifelong commitment which requires ongoing actions towards system level change. Being a bicultural/bilingual Latina and first-generation immigrant, I have been confronted by structural challenges that keep many people from underserved/underrepresented groups from accessing resources and opportunities such as higher education. I know the significant impact that effective advising and mentorship can have and feel very privileged to have the opportunity to work with students every day to support their academic and career goals.

Academic Background:

M.S., Conflict and Dispute Resolution, University of Oregon, 2015
