I was born in El Salvador and grew up in Los Angeles. I am the oldest of three and a first-generation college student. I live with my husband, two daughters, and our dog Bowie. I graduated from Boston University with a degree in English and Psychology. After graduating from Boston University, I lived in Boston for 11 years.
I am the Fulfillment Fund counselor that works with UCLA, APEX, and students in the Wise Readers Program. Prior to working at the Fulfillment Fund, I worked at an intensive care unit for adolescents. I returned back to my alma mater to start my work in college admissions. I worked in college admissions for 7 years, first as Assistant Director of admissions at Boston University and then Loyola Marymount University. I start my college counseling career at the Buckley School and have since worked at Viewpark Prep High school and Annenberg High School.
