I joined Apex as an evaluator in November 2020. My evaluation practices take a collaborative approach that is mindful of context and history and seek to clarify the world around us. For me, evaluation is all about turning data into understanding how things work and guiding practical change that betters people, organizations, and communities.

Background and Education

I have a bachelor’s degree in Anthropology from the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP). Wanting to expand my knowledge and skills, I moved to Albuquerque and the University of New Mexico where I completed a master’s degree in Anthropology. In August 2019 I entered the Master of Public Health program at UNM to further expand my data skills and branch out into health research and evaluation. My spare time mainly consists of spending time with my partner and New Mexican brown dog June Bug in pursuit of the perfect doughnut.
