I am a Ph D candidate (ABD) in Hispanic Linguistics, I study the intersection of linguistic and sociocultural identities. My dissertation focuses on the intergenerational linguistic identity, attitudes, usage, and language preservation in Mixteco/Spanish - Mixteco/English bilinguals and Mixteco/English/Spanish trilinguals in rural Oregon. Currently, I am a 2020-2022 Latin American and Iberian Institute fellowship recipient at the University of New Mexico. Since August 2021, I have been the Spanish Language Program Coordinator in Louisiana State University's Department of World Languages, Literatures and Cultures, directing around 100 sections of 5 lower-division face-to-face and online (asynchronous) courses with about 30 Lecturers and Graduate Teaching Assistants.
