As a bicultural first-generation Mexican descent professional, I’m encouraged to work in promoting health literacy and increasing research participation and representation of underserved and vulnerable populations. My research journey began during my undergraduate years at UC San Diego, where I obtained my bachelor’s degree in Public Health in 2016. Since then, I have acquired and continued to develop robust research experience, project management, and mentorship that encouraged me to further develop a career in public health research.
My work involves several years of community-based participatory research with Latino/e/x populations locally and abroad. I contributed to participant recruitment, survey development and administration, data collection and management, creation of reports, manuscript writing, and intervention delivery. I firmly believe that the interdisciplinary approach to fostering sustainable Latino/e/x community health and patient-centered care relies on a consistent effort to promote health literacy and decrease health disparities.
