My Personal and Professional Experiences
I'm a native speaker of Spanish born and raised in Paraguay. I moved to the U.S. over 25 years ago and have extensive multicultural experience. My professional background includes research planning and development, financial services, and non-profit work. I taught graduate and undergraduate courses at Regis University, Colorado State University, University of Northern Colorado, and Front Range Community College.
My love for qualitative research started back in 2009 while attending a graduate program at Colorado State University (an 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.
The value I provide is also based on the knowledge I received by obtaining a PhD in Education and Human Resources, a M.A. in English, and a B.A in Economics and B.A in Spanish from Colorado State University. I'm also a graduate of Leadership Fort Collins, a volunteer at different non-profits in my community, and an active member of the Fort Collins Chamber of Commerce.
