I was born in Hermosillo Sonora, Mexico.  In 1995, my family and I immigrated to the United States. In 2003, I graduated from Pima College with an Associate of Arts Degree in Liberal Arts. I also had the opportunity to exhibit some of my artwork at Cuadro Arte Latino Gallery in Tucson, Arizona. Later that fall, I transferred to The University of Arizona to continue my undergraduate education in Hispanic Literature.

In 2006, I graduated (Magna Cum Laude) from The University of Arizona with a B.A. in Spanish and a minor in Portuguese. I was very honored to receive the “Senior Outstanding Award” from the Humanities Department.  Soon after graduation, I went back to academia and in 2009, I graduated with an M.A. in Spanish with an emphasis in Hispanic Literature.  From 2009 to 2013 I became an Adjunct Faculty for The University of Arizona.  In August of 2013, I moved to Indiana to become a full time Spanish Instructor for Anderson University. I have to say that I am very happy to be here and I am amazed at God’s providence for my life. I love how my teaching career gives me the opportunity to interact constantly with students, to see them grow, and to grow with them. I delight in all the funny stories that teaching provides.

In my leisure time, I enjoy being outdoors; I love hiking, backpacking, climbing, and lifting weights. I thank my Lord Jesus for health, family, and strength!
