I was born in Seattle and come from a proud family of former migrant workers in eastern Washington. I have lived in San Francisco since 2017 and consider it my newfound home. I have an undergraduate degree in Journalism/Public Relations, and a master's degree in Comparative Literature from University College London, focusing on Mexican female artists in the aftermath of the Mexican Revolution.
I started at Gleeson Library in December 2021 as the Evening/Weekend Library Assistant after nearly ten years in the arts non-profit sector, most recently with San Francisco Ballet. I have been interested in transitioning to the university library system ever since completing my master's degree, and am thrilled to begin this new chapter with USF.
In my free time, I write short stories and creative non-fiction exploring the spectrum of Latinidad, identity, and belonging. I also love reading, secondhand bookstores, thrifting, traveling, meditation, and improving my very elementary-level knowledge of Italian.
