Meet the Staff
I worked at SAAVI as an intern while getting my degree in social work, and I’ve been the program manager since September 2013. I oversee the advocates, as well as provide advocacy and therapy to survivors of interpersonal violence. I also do outreach events and education for groups on campus.
I completed both a bachelor's and master's in social work from USU, and have practiced as a social worker for 10+ years, most recently as a therapist and medical social workers. I serve individuals of all ages in both English and Spanish. I'm also a passionate advocate for social justice and equality.
