After graduating from Texas A&M University, she began her career in education as a member of Advise TX College Advising Corp in Aldine Independent School District. In 2015, she joined Houston ISD’s College Readiness team as a College Readiness Advisor and served as a College Readiness Manager before her current role as Senior Manager of the ROSES Project.  In all these roles, she oversaw the implementation of high-quality initiatives, programming, and systems that support student success and postsecondary enrollment.

Supporting underrepresented youth is a major focal point of her career because she believes that every student can achieve the extraordinary when they are provided quality education and mentorship. She also finds it essential to give back and bring awareness to social issues, especially in Latin American countries like her homeland Colombia.
