                                As a proud first-generation college student, I excelled because of the close-knit community and access to resources and support on campus. In turn, I am looking to be just that for the business students I will advise here at MxCC. I consider myself incredibly fortunate to work with students day-in and day-out to navigate their paths, engage in meaningful learning opportunities, and uncover their “why.” Connect with me below to begin our work together today!
