My Story

Focused on Understanding

I'll reach a milestone in my academic career when I graduate and become a professional researcher later this year, in 2022. Growing up in California's Central Valley, my Cuban &  Salvadorean parents raised me to be curious, empathetic, and socially conscious.

Not long ago, I returned to school after a successful career in community health to complete what I began years prior.

My research has progressed into new projects focused on rural unincorporated America, including public health and government policy.

I invite you to look at my published work to better understand my research. Feel free to contact me to say hi or for more information about my work.
