Northern Arizona University
Professor and University Associate
I believe everyone should have a real opportunity to aspire to and access quality higher education, and I'm particularly interested in supporting and protecting public colleges and universities like the three I've had the privilege of working at: The University of Puerto Rico, CUNY's Lehman College and Northern Arizona University (NAU). My current work at NAU includes collaborating with friend and fundraising efforts, community engagement, and access-related initiatives. Donations from individuals and organizations help NAU's mission by broadening access to educational attainment for low-income, rural, first generation and Native American students, propelling Native American initiatives, contributing to impactful research and more.
