Education has been my passion for as long as I can remember and that has been my primary incentive to achieve my goals. I come from an underrepresented background like many students at WOU; I was the first one out of eight children to graduate from college, I was a low income student and I was a second language learner. Even though, a lot of people thought I was not going to make it and graduate from high school or college, I did. I graduated from Willamette High School located in Eugene, OR in 2005. I then went straight to college at Willamette University in Salem, OR and graduated from there in May 2009. I earned a B.A. in Latin American Studies and Spanish and a minor in History. After graduation I worked for various community organizations in Salem. I decided to take some time off from school to figure out what career path I was going to take. I will return to school in the near future to obtain a masters degree and if hopefully my PhD.
In the mean while, I am here at WOU and I am enjoying every little thing of it. Aside from having fun at work, I like to spend time with my family and my boyfriend. I watch documentaries, and do some scrapbooking.
I have always enjoyed working with students and their families. I look forward to meeting you and having great conversations about education.
