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.
I am lucky to have the support of my huge Mexican family and wonderful friends that have become my greatest supporters.

Favorite Saint Mary's Memory

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

My Next Chapter

After graduation, I will continue at my practicum site as a clinician providing early intervention in psychosis.

Clubs and Activities

I love being outdoors especially hiking and swimming
