Bio: Born and raised near Oakland, CA, I grew up privy to the systems that marginalize underrepresented communities. As the first in my family to finish high school and pursue a college degree, I truly grasp the many opportunities having a college degree can provide. I am committed to the values of diversity, inclusion, student growth, and the change needed to increase the number of people from underrepresented students in college and stamp out the cycle of hardship that keeps these groups from reaching their goals. I love the work of TRIO and its impact on students.

Education: Master of Science, educational leadership and policy, specialization in policy and government relations; Bachelor of Science, political science

Bio: I was a first-generation college student who grew up in Eugene, Oregon. I know that school is the key to people setting and reaching their goals. I am committed to helping students in finding their path and designing a plan that will allow them to reach their goals. I am devoted to seeing first-generation and non-traditional students earn degrees, transform their lives and change their futures. Diversity, equity, inclusion, and acceptance should be engrained in all aspects of schools.

Fun Fact: I love animals! Some of my favorites are manatees, turtles, llamas, and sloths.

Education: Master of Science, education: policy, foundations, and administration; Bachelor of Arts, sociology
