Admissions Counselor



    Saludos! I grew up in a city not too far from here called Brighton, about 45 minutes from Greeley. At the time it was a lot smaller of a town. I attended school with roughly the same group of students at three different stages (elementary, middle school, high school). Mi familia is originally from Durango, Durango in Mexico and Spanish is my first language! I am a first-generation student and I recently received my bachelors with my degree in Musical Theater and a minor in dance here at the University of Northern Colorado. In my time as a student at UNC I served as a student ambassador for almost 4 years, worked closely with our cultural centers, performed in several mainstage theater productions and I helped start a student organization named Operation: Cheesecake to promote proper representation and serve as a theater for social change. In my free time I love reading plays, watching movies and dancing!  

    Favorite place at UNC: 

    I find so much peace hammocking out by Cranford Park. There is always a chance to see some energetic dogs playing fetch and the trees are the perfect size/distance to position your hammock to catch the sunset’s rays in the best way and maybe read a good book. 

    Favorite place in Greeley: 

    Other than old downtown, I really enjoy going on jogs or walks around Glenmere Park. The small lake there brings a cool variety of wildlife and community that I love.

    Favorite UNC fact?  

    UNC has over 100 registered student organizations. I loved being able to build a group with my friends and I appreciated so much the ability to receive support from the school for the student groups. Also, with that many groups, you are certain to find your people!
