Get to Know Our Student Experience Team

What is your favorite spot in Miami?

I don’t really have a favorite but I enjoy going to Lincoln Road. It is completely touristy and cliché but it’s a place that my mom has always loved to walk around and so it reminds me of my family. We just pick a restaurant where we can sit outside and just people watch. You can see a little bit of everything there.

If you could travel anywhere outside of the U.S., where would you visit?

I would love to travel to the United Kingdom because after watching the Netflix show “The Crown,” I became obsessed with learning about the royal family and understanding their history.

What makes you laugh the most?

Scrolling through TikTok and honestly, myself!

What’s the most satisfying part of your job?

Getting to see students’ success. Not just in the classroom but also in work and their personal lives. I have gotten to see students land their dream jobs, start companies, find love, have children, etc. It’s amazing to get to be a part of so many students’ lives and just get to see them triumph.
