Deisy is a proud native Spanish speaker and enjoys selecting Spanish titles for the popular reading collection Spanish book plan. 

In her years at UW, she has served as a mentor for the Multicultural Student Leadership Initiative (MSLI) first-gen students.   

Her favorite pastimes outside work are hiking in the mountains with her family, cooking, and, when time allows, sewing, and pampering her two small guinea pigs.
