I am an activist, dancer, educator, and licensed clinical social worker dedicated towards raising awareness and political consciousness and empowering our community. I am hija of immigrant parents from Guadalajara, Mexico. I have Indigenous blood on both my maternal and paternal family sides and my ancestral lineage traces from Ciudad de México to Jalisco. I am here because of the sacrifices of my parents, abuelos and ancestors. It is with the connection to these roots, examining my identities, power and privilege, and by respecting my family, culture, history, and upbringing that I am able to do my work.

I find motivation from the youth, women, and families I work with. We focus on utilizing their strengths and decolonized ancestral roots to provide therapeutic interventions, reproductive justice, identity awareness, intergenerational communication, and community service learning to strengthen multicultural communities.

As a first generation in the U.S., mujer and a cultural broker with a mixed immigration status family, I have understood that it is my responsibility to create positive social and emotional change in my community. I was raised by community organizers and it is an honor to be able to work alongside them. My strong and humble mother is my greatest mentor, and she has dedicated her life to social justice and activism as well as making sure to pass the torch. I was born into the understanding that it is my matriarchal responsibility as her daughter to view community as my family and that our work comes with honor, cariño, and responsibility.

I am dedicated to social justice work and in solidarity with women of color, people with disabilities, QTPoC, BIPoC, immigrant, Undoc/DACAmented, and LGBTQ2 and other marginalized communities for our healing, engagement, and activism.

For the last 9 years, I have worked in public health in a national award-winning program aimed to promote reproductive justice and reduce the incidence of adolescent unplanned pregnancy, as well as to counter youth school dropout. I have continued to advance equity efforts as the Cultural Response and Inclusion Advisory Representative for the Public Health Department at the county level.

Another great passion of mine is directly working with my family through their community organizing. For the last 13 years, I have been director of youth programming at El Centro AMISTAD, and am the founder of the Annual Cumbre de Jóvenes Latinx Compañeras (ACJL). I enjoy working with women and youth to examine social justice issues and intersectionality for leadership, community, and movement building through providing mental health services, groups, and culturally healing interventions so that they can utilize the information learned, find their authentic identities, and create change for their futures.

I’ve been humbled with awards and recognition from my community including the 2017 Northern Colorado Dreamers United Community Activist Award, Boulder County Multicultural Award for Community Health and proudly served as President of Motus Theater’s board of directors. I graduated from the University of Denver with a Masters in Social Work with Clinical Mental Health & Global Practice and Sustainability concentrations. My Spanglish is intentional and a piece of my resilience, especially in institutional and academic spaces.
