Hola! My name is Dora and I am an academic advisor. I was born and raise here in Las Cruces, NM and I recently graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a minor in CEP. Currently, I am working on my next educational goal, pursuing my graduate degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. NMSU has provided me with invaluable opportunities that have helped me find out who I am and who I want to be. This journey has been full of struggles, but I know I have myself headed in the right direction.
As a Latina and a first generation college student, I have a special interest in working with higher education. I am driven to close the achievement gap and to stress the importance of education among the community. I am grateful to be part of the CAASS team and committed to make an impact on students’ success.
