I have extensive experience regarding evidence-based substance abuse prevention practices at local, state and bi-national levels. My career began in the late 1990s, when I was involved in implementing “model” curricula in communities. My role evolved in the mid-2000s to include provision of Training/Technical Assistance (T/TA) support to community-based coalitions so that they can align themselves with best practices. The T/TA efforts I have undertaken focus on numerous audiences, including single state agencies, community stakeholders, and service providers, such as Promotores or Community Health Workers. I have been part of various training teams that include members from U.S.-Mexico Border states and their sister cities in Mexico with the delivery of Strategic Prevention Framework in Spanish. Additionally, I have been part of regional training teams (i.e., Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s Center for Application of Prevention Technology (SAMHSA CAPT)) and have been called upon to provide training to various Latino and Native American populations to cater to cultural needs. More recently, I am part of a statewide evaluation team that support and technical assistance to grantees to accomplish their goals of decreasing prescription misuse and underage drinking in communities throughout New Mexico.
