Biography

I am originally from San Antonio, Texas but have lived in many parts of Texas, Madrid, Spain, and most recently, Middlebury, Vermont. I’ve spent my entire career in education, including teaching high school Spanish, serving as a college counselor, recruiting and reading files as an admissions counselor, and working at an educational non-profit for first-generation college-bound students.

At Oberlin, I work with students to ensure that they thrive. I offer success advising and coordinate the medical leave process. A highlight of my job is working with the Peer Mentors and their mentees, setting up programs that allow students space to connect and learn, and just spending time getting to know students. I’m also part of Presente and like to bowl in the faculty/staff/student league.

My husband, Manuel, also works for Oberlin College. We have a son, Julian, and a cat, Calcetines (Spanish for socks). For fun, I enjoy bicycling, swimming, gardening, reading, and I’m an avid San Antonio Spurs fan.
