I was born in Tula de Allende, Mexico, and raised in Los Angeles. I attended UCSB and graduated with an English major and a passion for making clothes. I designed and sewed shirts from my dorm room.

After college, I had the privilege of returning to my high school to be an English Language Development teacher and the Girl's Soccer Coach. I fell in love with it. I then joined Teach for America to obtain my Special Education teaching credential specializing in mild to moderate learning disabilities. I feel very fortunate to have been able to give back to the community that gave me everything.

During my 6 years in education, I designed rich and engaging learning experiences for my students. As a Special Education teacher, I designed students' Individualized Education Programs (IEP). Writing IEPs required an understanding of my student's present levels of performance, their needs, and the instructional accommodations necessary to achieve their next academic goals. Without knowing it, I already used the design process to provide the best learning experience for my students.
I have pivoted into UX Design because I want to use my experience and skills to have an even greater impact on the lives of more students. UX combines my passion for design, equity, accessibility, creativity, and technology.

I am now a User Experience Design & Research Intern on the Future Impact and Growth team at NWEA. I contribute to the future of education by utilizing my classroom knowledge to design learning experiences that are accessible to every student.
