Interview by the Oakleaf Fall 2015

1. Why did you want the position?

I am a graduate of Santa Rosa Junior College!    I worked as an adjunct for ten years in various districts.  I felt this school would be the most desirable to work for.  How fortunate am I to experience nostalgia as I walk around campus…

2. What do you hope to accomplish here?

As second generation Mexican-American most of my experience has been at Hispanic Serving institutions, such as Santa Rosa Junior College, and I will continue to advocate for first generation college students.  My desire is to support the needs of specific populations: Mathematically anxious, reentry, as well as the general population.  

3. How do you relax at home?

Play with my kids, cycling, good food and drink, provocative television programs produced by HBO and Showtime.

4. What was your dream job as a child?

I don’t remember.

5. What is your best college memory?

Sitting in Newman Auditorium waiting for Diane Smith’s Cultural Anthropology class to begin.  She would play world music from indigenous cultures.  Enthralling!

6. What is the sound track to your life?

Music is sacred to me.  I am prepared to give you my top 5 albums while on a stranded island, but this is tough… Every minute of my day is filled from beginning to end with work and family - and it is fast and loud!  So, something Heavy Metal!

7. What is your favorite junk food?

Nacho cheese

8. What is your advice for students currently attending the JC?

Ask lots of questions.  Question everything, applying critical thinking skills.  Also, drink a lot of water and get sleep…
