Where are you from?

I was born in Miami, Florida to Cuban parents.

What brought you to the University of Miami?

After a brief stint as a high school English teacher, I pivoted to higher ed administration. I worked for a number of years at a career college as an education director, where I was responsible for advising students, record-keeping, adherence to guidelines set forth by the school and accrediting bodies, and overseeing the day-to-day functions of the education department. Moving to the University of Miami was my ultimate goal, as I always hoped to work for a nationally-renowned institution with strong ties to the local community.
