Get to know me better:
I was raised in Latino & military family and had grown accustomed to new places, friends, and challenges; growing up I was expected to be the first in my immediate family to attend college. My family supported me in every way throughout high school and encouraged me to be involved and research all options as far as higher education was involved. I attended Texas Tech University, which quickly became my second home, and became involved in activities such as Hispanic Student Society, undergraduate research, and an orientation leader. After receiving my degree, I was encouraged by my professors to pursue a Master's degree where I worked as Graduate Assistant for the Multicultural Center on campus. I quickly grew to enjoy working with first-generation students. After graduating I traveled for a year before I started working for my alma mater. Currently, I work out of the Austin office which allows me to have the best of two amazing cities!

Personal Quote:
