I am a graphic designer and freelance empowerment artist. I specialize in print & digital media surrounding social justice, mental health, and survivor advocacy for womxn, BIPOC, and other marginalized and underrepresented communities. I identify as Chicana/Latina and use the pronouns she/her/ella.
I currently work as a Graphic Design Consultant for ACLU SoCal and as a Creative Director, Graphic Designer, and Illustrator for LunaYou, a maternal health nonprofit for BIWOC in Rhode Island. I am passionate about creating change within my community through the distribution of free and accessible resources. I look forward to continuing in community-oriented art and social advocacy.

During my time at UCR, I was a recipient of UC Riverside’s Healthy Campus Initiative grant, which enabled me to distribute empowerment-geared art to survivors of sexual violence and create hand-drawn and hand-lettered coloring books as a resource across various campus centers. Some of these centers included Counseling and Psychological Services, Women’s Resource Center, and CARE (Campus Advocacy, Resources & Education).
