She holds an Associates of Arts in Peace & Human Rights and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, and she has worked as a Family birth and labor doula since 2013. In 2022, she will be entering a Master’s Program to become a Licensed Professional Counselor. She identifies as a queer lesbian and lives with her family in Dallas, Texas.

Top favorite podcast: 
“On Being with Krista Tippet” – especially anytime a poet, philosopher, psychologist, or social justice advocate is on (my favs are Nikki Giavonni, Marie Howe, and Ruby Sales).

What do you enjoy doing when you’re not working? I love writing and developing visual creative using Film and Photography. You can also usually find me binge-watching Hulu and Netflix or hanging out with my family of gamers (mainly the Super Mario Bros collections). I also love to travel to experience different cultures through food, art, and community volunteering. I’ve only got 2 more continents to visit!

What drives you to do this work? My desire to grow my data storytelling skillset to better serve communities of my interests!
