My Story:

“What you seek is seeking you.” –Rumi


I truly believe in the idea that everyone is synchronized in their own pathway which leads them to ultimate success. This message comes from my love of dance, specifically Hip-Hop. By understanding one’s own beat in the harmony of this uni-“verse”, we can harmonize the path it will lead us in.


As a first generation college graduate, I’ve overcome the barriers and became the first in my family to achieve a long awaited dream. I first started as a Theatre Major pursuing a professional acting career. Through the process, it struck me that I enjoy helping others discover what they want to do in life. Following my true calling started because I began to listen to the beat I played in the symphony of this uni-“verse”.


Before arriving with FRCC, I served as a top-level college mentor working with emerging adults from diverse backgrounds (first generation, low-income, and students of color) at Key Communities with Colorado State University. Now as the New Bilingual Admissions & Outreach Representative at Front Range Community College at the Larimer Campus, I’m excited and thrilled to begin this new path in helping future generations reach their higher education goals.


Though my role at FRCC, my focus will be to work with Poudre School District high schools and students with a focus on creating a bridge for the LatinX/underserved students, families, and community partners. Saying that, I am here today and gladly can say I will continue one of my biggest passions!
