I’m a clinical professor. A program builder. A curriculum designer. A grant writer. And, an education advocate for students who are the first in their families to attend college.

I enjoy the process of seeing individuals and programs grow and succeed. I built the experiential learning programs in media at A&M-San Antonio from the ground up, expanding from 8 communication majors to over 200+ majors in the span of a decade. Today, I direct three award-winning hands-on learning labs: a student-produced digital news site, a bi-annual print magazine, and the Emmy-award winning television capstone program at Univision Media Lab at KWEX/Ch. 41. I mentor faculty, oversee the budget, manage projects and and handle all the longterm planning that makes a center director’s job incredibly varied and wonderful! Most recently, I serve as the Communication program’s first internship director, administering 50 students annually in agency settings in central and south Texas.
Drawing on my professional experience in journalism, advertising and public relations, I transitioned away from industry in 2010 to launch an undergraduate media program, designed as a competitive training ground and career preparation model at a Hispanic Serving Institution. Using my experience as an experiential learning consultant in the K-12 system, I collaborated with Texas A&M-San Antonio to launch English and Spanish media labs that are responsive to market needs and encourage media collaboration and innovation between students and professionals. My nationally recognized experiential learning programs provide university-funded training opportunities and mentorship for students to gain the necessary skills, experience and portfolios to enter entry-level industry positions.
I’m very proud of my students. They have earned recognition and scholarships from the National Association of Hispanic Journalists, Google, the Online News Association, and the Society of Professional Journalists. In 2012 and 2017, my students earned Lone Star Emmy awards in collaboration with Univision 41-San Antonio. It’s been a pleasure to watch my first-generation college students land graduate studies acceptances and fellowships, including Boston University’s Graduate College of Communication, Rutgers University, and University of California Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism. Alumni of the program are interning/working in markets across the country including WNYC, Twitter, Forbes, Wired Magazine and other companies.
