As a Facilitator and a Coach, my work has always centered on giving people from marginalized communities the skills to advocate for themselves. I’m a native of Lawrence, MA. and a proud first-generation Dominican-American, and so my work is motivated by my lived experience. That’s why everything I do is focused on supporting and amplifying marginalized voices in higher education, non-profit and corporate spaces. That’s what I’m good at, and what I care about.
While majoring in Latin History at the College of the Holy Cross, I worked with the College's Bridge program, and mentored incoming first-year students of Color, while focusing my studies on Afro-identity and the marginalization of Afro-descendent populations in the Caribbean. After graduating, I established the DREAM Projects' first marketing policies, centering around the dignified representation of staff and students in the Dominican Republic. I later joined GenUnity’s team as a Facilitator, Manager, and now Program Director of their flagship programs, while continuing my work around diversity, equity, inclusion, and changing organizational culture as a facilitator with orgs like Collective Next and RogersLeads.
