I’m originally from Miami, Florida where I grew up with a younger brother and 2 pugs. In my free time I love cooking and doing yoga! I am currently a student at UT Austin getting my Masters in Speech Pathology. I work in UT’s Aphasia lab where I help with neuroimaging and therapy protocol. I hope to have a career as an SLP in a hospital, hopefully back in LA!
