I am a first generation college graduate and a product of the community college system.  I earned a bachelor’s degree in communications from Cal Poly Pomona and a master’s in counseling from CSU San Bernardino.  Previously, I worked in Admissions & Outreach at Cal Poly Pomona and served as a counselor for the STEM Grant Initiative in partnership with Riverside City College.

Una de las mejores partes de mi posición es estar involucrado en ayudar a los estudiantes interesados en las disciplinas STEM tener éxito en sus metas académicas. Como producto del sistema de colegios comunitarios y como graduado de la primera generación, siento una conexión especial con los estudiantes en el Programa 2 (STEM). Recibí una licenciatura en Comunicaciones de Cal Poly Pomona y una maestría en Consejería de la Universidad Estatal de California San Bernardino. Algunas de mis cosas favoritas para hacer son: bailar Salsa, canta a la música Mariachi, descubriendo nuevos restaurantes y disfrutar del aire libre.
