Bio: 

Jeanette's personal and professional experiences as a low-income Queer Xicana and first-generation college student have positively contributed to her passions for social change and justice, particularly for indigenous women and all women of color. I aim to contribute to the creation and sustainment of safe spaces for indigenous women and women of color to heal and thrive in and for the assured accessibility to reproductive and mental healthcare. In my free time you can find me jamming to Beyonce and Selena, catching up on my favorite Chicanx and Xicanx theorists, trying on makeup with my friends, or eating hot cheetos.
