My goal is to assist students in navigating and transitioning to college, while having a positive experience. I faced the challenges of transition first hand when I moved to the US, so I can relate to this with many students. I was born and raised in Puerto Rico, and after completing my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, I moved to Tampa and encountered a big cultural adjustment. However, I found a support system that assisted me in achieving professional and personal growth.

I pursued a Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction and have been working in Higher Education for over 13 years. I joined USF in 2015 and found my niche here, as I am able to work with students, provide support, and build amazing relationships. In addition to advocacy I am an adjunct instructor, which helps me connect with students in a different capacity, allowing me to better serve them during their first year.
