I was born in East Los Angeles, California, and raised in Bakersfield, where I completed a B.A. and M.A. in English at California State University, Bakersfield. After completing my M.A. and Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Writing, I moved to the San Francisco area to pursue a teaching career in higher education. In 2014, I moved from California to Washington for a tenured teaching position in the English department at Highline College. In collaboration with administrators and other instructors, I co-coordinated and helped found the first Washington state chapter of the Puente Program at Highline College. I culturally identify as Salvadoreña, Mexicana, and American. I teach with the goal of improving educational access and equity for students and educators.
Meeting one-on-one or in small groups is one of my favorite ways to work with students and colleagues. In the schedule below, drop-in Hours are times you can just stop by without an appointment. Please make sure to wear an N95 mask and be advised offices are small and don't allow for distancing.
