My Personal and Professional Experiences
I'm the president of Infante Consulting and Research and a native speaker of Spanish, born and raised in Paraguay. I have extensive multicultural research experience, with a professional background in research planning and development, financial services, and non-profit work. I taught graduate and undergraduate courses related to research and multiculturalism at Regis University, Colorado State University and University of Northern Colorado.
My love for qualitative research started around the year 2000s while attending a graduate program at Colorado State University (a R-1 university known as a very active research university). Since that time I have been part of several research opportunities for different projects at Colorado State University and Washington State University, which provided me with the discipline and experiences necessary to conduct robust research studies, by abiding to rigorous standards and ethical expectations. My background incorporates not only the knowledge of the theory of qualitative research but also how to conduct research from beginning to end. I have conducted research projects related to different topics, with different populations and applied different methodologies based on my clients' needs.
I'm an active member of the Qualitative Research Consultants Association (QRCA) where I'm part of the Advance Committee, a Feature Editor of the QRCA Views Magazine (Toolbox section), and a member of the Insights Association, Southwest Chapter. I'm a graduate of Leadership Fort Collins class of 2016-2017.
Giving back to the community is important to me. I'm a member of the Fort Collins Chamber of Commerce, Latino Chamber of Commerce, and a board member of Alternatives to Violence, a non-profit organization providing shelter, advocacy, education and resources for people impacted by domestic violence, sexual assault and human trafficking. I also volunteered my time at several other organizations such as Leadership Fort Collins, Crossroads Safehouse, Habitat for Humanity, Animal House and other great organizations in Northern Colorado.
