what is your professional background?
Cuál es su experiencia profesional?

I came to NATIFS in the midst of the pandemic and the uprising following George Flyod's murder and have been here in some form ever since! I have a BA in Professional Strategic Communications from the Hubbard School at The UofM Twin Cities which I have used over the last few years working in music journalism, marketing and event planning, and CPG branding and packaging design. I also brought with me a 10-year service industry background having done nearly every job both front and back of house.

What does your typical workday at NATIFS involve?
Qué implica tu jornada laboral típica en NATIFS?

I'm always writing things down places so I don't forget to do them and then I forget where I wrote them down and have to ask my coworkers what the things were again. I "make things look pretty" and can answer just about any question about our employee benefits plan or where to find something in the building.

When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Cuando eras niño, ¿qué querías ser de mayor?

I wanted to be a famous artist when I was really young. Then there were a few years when I wanted to be a medical researcher and work with stem cells, but it turned out that science and math were not my strong suits. I ended up back in a more creative career after all.
