I have been at the The Department of Mexican American Studies (MAS) since 2003. I teach the Introduction to Mexican American Studies and a Latin@ Urbanization course for undergraduates. I encourage graduate students to enroll in my Mexicana/Chicana History course.
Born and raised in Tucson, my deep family roots on both sides of the Arizona-Sonora border inspired my interest in regional history. My newest research project investigates the history and politics involved in establishing Mexican American museums and cultural centers.
