I am currently serve as the Assistant Director for Undergraduate & Transfer Recruitment and Community Relations with the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Prior to my work in Recruitment office I worked as a Senior Advisor for the College of Health Sciences and as an academic advisor in the Pre-College programs. In my 17 year career at UWM I have worked with hundreds of students and their families, helping them prepare for post-secondary admission, select their courses and eventually graduate from college.

I began my post-secondary education at the University of Puerto Rico where I was admitted on a full scholarship for Track and Field, but then transferred later to the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee where I graduated with a bachelor’s of Fine Arts and masters in Educational Policy.
