En este tiempo ha reconocido los desafíos y obstáculos que enfrentan la comunidad inmigrante, una comunidad resiliente que merece ser tratada con respeto y dignidad. Cada persona es un líder en potencia.

Comunidades Unidas le permite desarrollarse y ser la voz y un agente de cambio positivo para su comunidad.

My journey in the nonprofit and sexual health world began in 2018 when I began working at Planned Parenthood Utah’s call center. During this time I couldn’t shake the feeling of needing to be out in my community, learning the most humane approach in order to build trust and connections was to intentionally listen to their stories, lived experiences, and perspectives, I discovered a passion for sexual health in specific because of how vast the term is and how many different categories are related to this subject and how each person's different identities and intersectionalities affected their sexual and reproductive health.


Through a lot of listening and patience I continue to learn how to introduce this subject to folks from different backgrounds. I was officially hired at CU in 2021 after working in partnership through PPAU (Planned Parenthood Association of Utah) with CU and our team of promotora’s throughout 2020. Since then I have gained so much invaluable knowledge and I intend to continue my learning process indefinitely. I have the absolute privilege of being a certified Sexual Assault Counselor, running CU’s Sexual Health Education program, and overseeing our Breast Cancer Prevention and COVID-19 Education programs. My values I intend to always uphold in my role as a Promotora are as an activist of social justice, reproductive justice, and trying my best to always look for the margins within the margins.
