Hello, my name is Erica Padilla Saiz and I am originally from Denver, Colorado. I earned a double B.A in Chicana/o Studies and Spanish at Metropolitan State University of Denver (MSU Denver), and a M.A. in Ethnic Studies from Colorado State University (CSU). I worked in higher education for five years at both MSU Denver and CSU; I worked in the Student Support Services center under TRIO, the Student Activities Office, and as a TA. Additionally, I’ve worked five years within Denver Public Schools and Jefferson Public Schools; both within the Denver metro area. For the last year and a half, I worked as an Out of District Liaison for the Pueblo of Santa Ana, within their education department. My goal is to help students navigate the scholarship and wage process so that they can achieve their academic, career and personal goals. I look forward to serving all Institutions of Higher Education and the community.
