I am from Macon, Georgia, and have lived in Colorado since 2015. I am an enthusiastic provider of student support services and believe that every student should have an opportunity for a successful academic experience. This belief has fueled my 20+ years of teaching and tutoring. In my current position, I work to make sure students, faculty, and staff have access to the variety of resources we offer in the LRC. I’m honored to work with an amazing group of folks who have the same passion for student success.
I’m from Smith River, California and have been in Colorado with CU Denver since 2015. I’m one of the learning specialists and work directly with students for individual coaching sessions as well as group learning workshops. I am a first-generation student and have been in education for over 30 years as a secondary English teacher, admissions director, and now a learning specialist for the LRC.
I'm a Colorado native and a first-generation student. I started at CU Boulder nearly a decade ago and transferred to CU Denver in 2015 where I have been with the LRC team ever since. My role and responsibilities in the LRC has evolved to department finances, payroll, website/social media, HR, and front desk/office management. Colorado is my heart and CU Denver is where I find that utilizing my organization and creative skills helps make the LRC better for our students.
I am a CU Denver graduate and I am passionate about the intersection of education and science and believe that with the right resources, learning is attainable for anyone. In my position I support programs such as Boost and drop-in tutoring that help guide students through difficult concepts, build confidence in their abilities, and empower them to become independent learners.
I am both a first-generation American, on account of my father’s migration to the US from Mexico, and Hispano because of my Indigenous/Spanish ancestry in the Southwest. I work with students individually and in group settings to help them discover what drives their academic choices, and how to best navigate some of the nuances that come with university life.
