Since her retirement from Metropolitan State University of Denver as Vice President of Student Affairs, she has remained active in the community and at MSU. She currently works part-time as a special events programmer for Clínica Tepeyac. She serves on the Board of Directors for Firefly Autism. She served the Governor’s appointee to the Auraria Higher Education Center Board of Directors, Escuela Tlatelolco and Denver Mayor’s Commission on Cultural Affairs and the Denver Latino Commission.
