As an expert communicator and strategic thinker, I drive innovation and continuous improvement within organizations. I draw on my research experience in the behavioral sciences, where I focused on issues of inequality and social change, to identify and evaluate performance metrics that advance strategic objectives. I have led multiple initiatives to formulate collective agendas and leverage partnerships as a means to achieve shared objectives at the university level, within nonprofit organizations, and at the national level in Guatemala. I have presented at numerous national and international conferences, including the American Political Science Association’s Annual Conference, the Latin American Studies Annual Conference, and the Ashoka U Exchange Conference. I have also published research on gender policy and women’s activism in democratizing states. At the University of Colorado, I taught graduate and undergraduate classes on public policy, research methods, politics in Latin America, social movements, and political economy.
