Started at Nexus: 2018

At Nexus:

I joined Nexus in 2018 as the Leadership Intern, working with the Boards and Commissions Leadership Institute (BCLI).


In 2015, I graduated with my Bachelor’s in Anthropology and International Studies from Macalester College. During and after Macalester, I spent time working and collaborating with various non-profits throughout the cities, focusing primarily on engaging Latinx youth and families. As a youth worker, I fostered my passion for working with communities to support their growth and empowerment. That is what lead me to pursue my Masters in Public Policy at the University of Minnesota and to join Nexus as their Summer Leadership Intern. In my free time, I enjoy exploring the Twin Cities, cooking, and camping (weather permitting).
