Raised on a small family farm in Northern California, I worked alongside my family cultivating our food and a love for teamwork. As an undergraduate I studied at UC Santa Cruz and the University of Alcala de Henares, Spain, double majoring in Politics and Language Studies. After graduation I spent several years managing an arts education and youth development program in Oakland. I left Oakland for the incredible opportunity to be a Fulbright Fellow in Spain, research migration from Northern African to the EU, and develop a leadership program for migrant youth. Afterwards, I obtained my Masters degree from UC San Diego in Latin American Studies, with a specialization in International Migration. Supporting students at Cabrillo College has been a true gift for me because our students inspire me everyday.
