Background

I am an Ashkenazi-Colombian immigrant to Tiohtià:ke (montreal), unceded Kanien’kehà:ka (Mohawk) territory, where I have spent most of my life. I have a background as an emergency wilderness First Responder & in river rescue. Being an environmental and social activist are also center to my life, something I inherited from my family.

Education

I am currently completing my B. Sc. Nursing (2024) from McGill University. I also hold a DEC Biomedical Sciences & a DEC Visual Arts from Cegep St-Laurent.

Career

I have loved teaching and guiding as a First Aid & BLS Instructor & Outdoor guide/manager (canoeing, hiking, winter camping, biking) in the past decade. I look forward to starting my nursing career in the community or emergency setting.

Interests

I love all the outdoor sports! Spending time outside is even better with friends and family, a pivotal reason I developed an interest in protecting our beautiful Earth. I also love painting and using art to contribute to activism.
