I am presently seeking a position that draws upon my extensive teaching and program management experience in higher education and nonprofit organizations. I have over seven years of university teaching experience in History (Latin American, world, U.S. immigration, Spanish, and East Asian), Spanish, and Spanish-English Interpretation. I am an innovative educator, dedicated to fostering in students a critical engagement with our world through inquiry and service learning. Student evaluations have consistently characterized me as a dynamic teacher of highly interactive classes, creative in my teaching methods, and successful with diverse learners. I am an award-winning scholar (Coordinating Council for Women in History (CCWH) Prelinger Award, 2010) specializing in race and gender in Latin America (19th-20th centuries) and I presently serve on the CCWH Executive Board.

Reflective of my commitment to community engagement, I have published and presented in multiple community forums as well as led university community outreach programs. From 2009 to 2013, I coordinated Salisbury University's Bienvenidos a Delmarva (2009-2013) where I organized educational programs on immigrant issues for a network of over 70 public, private, and nonprofit agencies. I presently serve as Program and Development Coordinator of the Japanese Peruvian Oral History Project (JPOHP). I recently secured a National Endowment for the Humanities grant to fund the JPOHP/National Japanese American Historical Society’s creation of a digital museum, on which I serve as Principal Scholar, on the incarceration of Japanese Latin Americans in U.S. internment camps during WWII. Finally, I have over a decade of experience managing education and advocacy programs in human (Mothers of the Disappeared in El Salvador, Witness for Peace, and JPOHP), civil (Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights), and workers' rights (The Newspaper Guild-Communications Workers of America) in the United States and Latin America.
