Roles and responsibilities at Latino Network:

I facilitate a program called Colegio de Padres in the PPS school district. The program offers bi-monthly parent workshops that provide information, tools, and community resources that help parents advocate for their children's education and successfully navigate the school system so they can achieve their educational career goals.

What motivates you to do this job at Latino Network?

I enjoy working with the parents and helping them be the best supporter for their children's education. It is very rewarding to see the parents participate in the program year after year, always eager to learn something new, and grateful for the information received.

Interests and activities:

I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and my dog Paloma. I like to bake, dance, watch movies and go to the coast.

Most proud achievement:

I am proud of belonging to a close-knit family with strong cultural roots. I'm also proud of being the first in my family to graduate from high school and college.
