Hello! I am a PhD Candidate in History and Arthur J. Schmitt Fellow at Loyola University Chicago, and a Visiting Student Researcher at the University of California, Berkeley. Among various topics, I am interested in United States-Latin American transnational history, ideology, and borderlands. I am currently writing my dissertation on the political activities of the Unión Nacional Sinarquista, a right-wing Mexican Catholic organization, in the United States during World War II. My work for my Masters in Latin American Studies at the University of California, San Diego covered women's leadership in the Partido Liberal Mexicano while the party was in exile in early twentieth century Los Angeles. I have also conducted research and presented on the sanctuary movement of the 1980s.
Apart from academia, I am passionate about education and social justice. I enjoy eating (I'm a foodie!), traveling and riding my bike in my free time. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
