I'm a senior Forensic Psychology Major with a minor in Criminalistics. I am very passionate about advocating for others, whether that be people or animals :)! I've worked at the MCC since 2019, and have loved every minute of it. If you ever need a safe space to de-stress or just hangout please come visit us!

My goal for this school year is to keep pushing through any obstacles that may come my way and continue growing as a person.

I grew up in a small town in New Mexico that was filled with murals and Chicano heritage so it’s not a mystery why I’m majoring in Graphic Design and Spanish. The core pillars of who I am were formed in that small mining town and that includes my love for nature and food! Although a part of me will always miss the green chile and the desert wilderness, I’m glad I’m able to expand my experiences here at WIU where I’m far away from rattlesnakes and tarantula hawk wasps (yes, those are real). My goal is to study abroad and strengthen my Spanish skills.

Don't be sad about your panza, give self love a lil chanza
