Bachelor of Arts in English and Education, Florida International University

Where are you from?

I was born and raised in Coral Gables, Florida – suburb of Miami. I am first-generation Cuban American with English, German, and Spanish ancestry.

What brought you to the University of Miami?

I previously worked at another local university for three years and it was there where I realized higher education administration was my career path – specifically student oriented service. I believe in creating a holistic student experience through guidance, support, and efficacy. When I was a little girl my mother enrolled me in note-taking classes at the University of Miami. Even at that young age, I knew UM was special. Working at UM’s medical campus is exciting; we are in the pulse of medicine and science. I work with current and future leaders in cutting edge research and medical education and we collectively contribute to UM’s mission.
