Steamboat Springs is the only city she has lived in since she moved to the United States 4 years ago, she was so attached to the state and the city that she decided not to move again, shortly after living here she met Comunidad Integrada and approached them to offer her knowledge and time through volunteering and in this way she joined the academic area, supporting elementary school children to promote reading and writing in Spanish seeking to perpetuate the Latino culture and language. She has taken advantage of the resources offered by CIIC and has perfected her English with tutors provided by CIIC.
As a Latin American, she knows the importance of supporting the community with love and gratitude to the organization, so she decided to join the Integrated Community team as an ECE outreach specialist and is committed to working with the families, staff, and the entire community
