I was born and raised in the beautiful Managua, Nicaragua. I graduated from John Brown University with a degree in Mathematics and Physics. I am fluent in Spanish and English (and can pick up French if I try really hard!). I love animals so much that I thought I was going to be a veterinarian, but I quickly realized that math and science are my true passions. During my undergrad, I worked on a diversity project about women and minorities in STEM-related careers. The project was published in Chemical and Engineering News, a scientific magazine that branches out from the American Chemistry Society. My mom and I are refugees here. We decided to come to Guanacaste because of all the beautiful beaches and the climate that is so similar to home. You will catch me reading a book, drawing something, or skateboarding over the weekends. I am excited to accompany you on your learning experience!
