About Vanessa

I’m a first generation Mexican-American college graduate and graduate student, meaning that I’m the first in my family to graduate with a Bachelor’s degree from a U.S. institution and pursue higher education, via a Master’s and Doctoral degree (in progress). Outside of academia, I enjoy going to live concerts, hula hooping, rock climbing, and spending time with my cat, Luci. I also frequently travel to Guanajuato, Mexico where my family is from.
