Bio: I am a Chicana Doctoral student at CU Boulder from Montbello Colorado. I am starting my third year in the School of Education, focusing on Learning Sciences and Human Development. I recently graduated with my master's degree in Counseling, specializing in Couple and Family Therapy.
My work focuses on the intersections of race, mental health and education to explore issues of social justice, power, and culture in learning. Specifically, looking at racial trauma, the emotional body, inner child, learning spaces, and fugitive wellness.
