About me: Hi there! I was born and raised in San Jose, Costa Rica and then moved to Miami, Florida. From an early age, I was excited to pursue higher education and attended USF in which I truly enjoyed my undergraduate experience. I studied Management Information Systems but I discovered my passion was in education through my involments in college. As a first-generation college student, I discovered higher education to be an essential part of my developmental journey. That’s why I committed myself to working in higher education, specifically in student support roles. In graduate school, I spent a lot of time thinking about methods to best support students that lived on campus and their academic success. In 2017, I received my M.Ed. in Higher Education at FAU and made the move to the Pacific Northwest to start my time at UW Bothell supporting students in various roles. 

Outside of UWB, I love playing with my dog, checking out new resturants around Seattle, and exploring Washington State. After living in tropical climate majority of my life, I truly fell in love with the PNW way of life. 

Approach: My approach to coaching students in academic success is making sure to give students room to share their thoughts and concerns fully in order to afford them the space to establish a new way of thinking. This helps guide them to the development of strategies to tackle their challenges both in the classroom (in person and virual) and in their personal lives.

Please come visit me in Student Successs Center and let me know how I can help you at the University of Washington Bothell!
