Eric is the child of immigrant farm workers from Tepatitlan Jalisco, and grew up in a migrant family in Castroville California.  As a high school student he received immense support and guidance from his Migrant Counselor, who challenged him to reimagine success, and put himself in the picture. It was at that point that he realized he must “pay it forward” and do the same for future youth of this community. He obtained a bachelor’s degree in Sociology from the University of Santa Cruz in 2003 and a Master’s degree and PPS credential from San Diego State in 2010.  After serving as a Migrant Resource Counselor in the SUHSD for several years, his career path brought him to this juncture, and now serves our local migrant community as the Hartnell HEP Director.
