I Welcome to my website!
I am a doctoral student in the Department of Sociology at the University of California, Merced. I graduated from the University of South Florida in 2015 with a Masters of Arts in Sociology. In 2010, I graduated from New College of Florida, the public honors college of Florida, with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology.
My research interests are race and ethnicity, immigration, family, intersectionality, and Latina/os. I study racial and ethnic socialization in Latina/o/x families.
I have presented my research at the Society for the Study of Social Problems conference, the National Association for Ethnic Studies (NAES) conference, the American Sociological Association's Race, Gender, and Class conference, and the National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR). I have co-organized sessions and round tables for the American Sociological Association's annual meeting.
I currently serve on the Board of Directors for the Society for the Study of Social Problems. I am also Student Representative for the American Sociological Association's Latina/o Sociology and Race, Gender, and Class sections. I previously served a two-year term as Graduate Student Representative for ASA's Student Forum Advisory Board (2014-2016). I served as Treasurer and Secretary for the board from 2015-2016.
