I am a Salvadoran American with a passion for mental health and equitable education.

I graduated from Harmony Public Schools in 2014 which provided crucial support during my formative years, guiding me toward academic success. After earning my degree in Nutrition from UH in 2019, I transitioned into education, where I witnessed the systemic challenges within our public school system firsthand.

Now, pursuing my Masters in Professional Counseling, I’m committed to integrating mental health support in schools to help students navigate life’s challenges and achieve their academic goals. My values of empathy, equity, and resilience drive me forward as I strive to create a nurturing educational environment that prioritizes students’ emotional well-being alongside academic achievement.
