I am a doctoral student in the School of Education in the department of Educational Foundations, Organizations, and Policy in the Higher Education program. I earned my Master’s in Higher Education from the University of Denver and my Bachelor of Arts from Colorado College where I double majored in Spanish and Anthropology with a minor in English. My leadership experience began in my home at a young age where I translated for my parents and helped take care of my siblings, to name a few. Professionally, I have been the chair for a search committee, school-wide staff representative for strategic planning, co-founded a first-generation college

student mentor program, and was a student organization advisor for the Society of Women Engineers. Most recently, in my doctoral journey, I was the business manager for two executive years for the Council of Graduate Students in Education (CGSE) and currently the 21-22 President. All of my leadership opportunities have molded my perspective and skills.

My plans for what I would do in the position of GPSG consists with unity, inclusiveness, and joy in mind. I would love to bring all graduate student organization to collaborate with each other and share resources. I have faith that there are some commonalities amongst all of the organizations that we could coordinate at least one or two events throughout the year where we unite financially and programmatically that best serves students. I would love to coordinate relations with the administration, external organizations, and internal organizations with inclusivity in mind, such as advocating for those most impacted by the system (graduate funding’s, parent students, students with disabilities). Last but not least, I will strive to lead with joy, which may seem like a simple concept but is important.
