I am very passionate about adolescent health: Their mental health, their sexual health, their physical health, and most importantly their access to the medical care they need. In my role as Evaluator, I have the privilege to work with youth-serving programs across the country where I provide assistance with program planning, development, and implementation. I enjoy teasing out trends in data and showing the impact and importance of the programs we serve. I feel very lucky to be involved in the wonderful work our clients are doing for our kids and communities.

Background and Education

I have been with Apex since 2013 and have enjoyed the evolution of our company and the innovative nature of our work. I grew up in Edgewood, New Mexico, east of Albuquerque, and now reside there with my husband, kids, and four dogs. I am most inspired by family, friends, music, and the enjoyment of life. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology with a minor in Psychology and a Master of Public Health degree with a concentration in Epidemiology from the University of New Mexico. My professional and educational journeys have opened my eyes to many social issues facing our communities, and I am grateful I get to help influence needed change.
