Where were you born?
What school did you attend?
Pontifical Xavieri University
What gained your interest in the NIH?
I have been involved in health communications for many years, mostly in Spanish. My work has had a multicultural component and the goal has always been to make it easier for Hispanic communities in the US to access valuable medical and health information. NIH has always been a leading institute for medical research in many areas and has a great staff working to improve the lives of people in the United States and across the world.
What kind of work do you do at the NIH?
I managed the Spanish program at the National Cancer Institute, which included the www.cancer.gov/espanol web site, social media channels, strategic planning and any other aspect related to Spanish and multicultural communities. I am transitioning now from Bilingual Communication Specialist into a role of Lead Communication Specialist at the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute to work with digital information and minority outreach.
