Evelynn (she her, hers) currently serves as the Student Retention Specialist for the College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP) at Metropolitan State University of Denver. She obtained her Higher Education degree in College Student Affairs and Educational Leadership from Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania. Evelynn moved from Pennsylvania to Colorado in 2015 to continue her career in Higher Education in a city and state where she could utilize her bilingual abilities and passion for diversity to assist students and their families. In her 3+ years at MSU Denver, Evelynn has worked in New Student Orientation coordinating Spanish Family Orientations, and served in campus campus initiatives as President of the Latino/Latina Faculty and Staff Association, Co-chair within the Hispanic Serving Institution Implementation Team, and trainer for Undocupeers as member of the DREAMer Network. Evelynn enjoys and thrives in presenting to groups about topics such as college readiness, personal experiences as a young Latinx professional, utilization of assessment in campus programming, and supervision of student staff. Evelynn is learning so much from her experiences and her network in Colorado.   Being an immigrant herself and with a passion and commitment for social equity, leadership and the Latinx population, the move to Colorado has been proven to be a natural fit.
