about me

My approach requires that I give holistic consideration to learners’ lives across all streams of my academic work: research, teaching, advocacy, mentoring, and advising. In that spirit, here's a bit about me beyond my research and teaching:

  • I was born in Venezuela to Colombian parents #migrationisbeautiful

  • After growing up undocumented in the US, I love to travel as much as possible!

  • I live in Norwalk, CT with my husband (Jorge), my child (Cruz), and our furry child (Albus).

  • I love to get lost in a fiction book, binge-watching TV, delving into a new DIY project, and treasure-hunting at tag sales (aka garage or yard sales).
