My Story

Growing up in a Spanish-speaking household, I often took on the role of interpreter for medical discussions that took place between family members and doctors. I have a passion for working with individuals who face disparities in care due to language barriers. A career in speech-language pathology would allow me to work with bilingual populations and make a difference in the Latino community.

My Blue Bird Day

I am happy to be back at Blue Bird and to be a part of an amazing team! Each day is a new opportunity to be able to learn something new!

My Blue Bird Day Goals

  1. I plan on going back to school and receive my Masters in Speech Pathology.
