I am a professional social worker interested in conducting mezzo/macro level social work at the community level in Spanish-speaking communities. Having worked directly with street-involved youth while studying abroad in Mexico, I am impassioned to develop community capacity and positive youth development in Mexico, as well as conducting policy advocacy. My skill-set includes data collection and qualitative and quantitative data analysis, report writing, project and program management, development, assessment and evaluation, policy development at the organizational level, interpersonal work with children and youth, as well as use of NVivo and SPSS statistical analysis software.
Currently an Advanced Standing MSW candidate at the University of Michigan, School of Social Work in Ann Arbor, Michigan, I am guiding my professional career towards international community development to support youth and family well-being, with focuses in program development and evaluation, and program and project management.
