Additionally, she was awarded an M.S. in Counseling from California State University, Long Beach (Go Beach!) where she completed a thesis on Latinas in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) who have persisted through community college and 4-year universities. Her research and experience working with transfer students at Santa Ana College has ignited her passion for working with first-generation, low-income, and non-traditionally aged students who have overcome a variety of obstacles to reach their academic goals. Her commitment to student success has inspired her to pursue a doctorate in the near future in order to change the institutional barriers faced by these students.
