I support local efforts to build thriving communities as a team-member of the Thriving Places impact area. My role as a program officer focuses on our capacity building seminar offerings, ArtStock initiative, and supporting organizations as they work to achieve their mission. I am passionate about working with traditionally underrepresented communities.
I grew up in Omaha and attended the University of Nebraska at Omaha where I earned my Bachelor of Science degree with majors in Political Science and Latin/Latino American Studies. In previous roles I worked for nonprofit agencies in various capacities including program management and development.
I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, exploring the outdoors and serving my community. I currently serve as the incoming president for the South Omaha Business Association (SOBA) and vice-president for the Metro Young Latino Professionals Association (MYLPA).
