My Greatest Supporters

Growing up in a small ranching village in coastal Michoacán Mexico gave me many lessons in familial relationships and dynamics that have influenced my professional journey.

My favorite SMC part was Dr. Fleuridas’s personal and professional development class as she set the stage for a successful counseling program.
