Danielle Quintero is a second-year doctoral student in counseling psychology at the University of Missouri – Columbia, where she also received her Masters of Arts degree in counseling psychology. Danielle's primary research and clinical interests lay in the areas of trauma and sexual violence specifically within the Latina/o community. In particular, she is interested in understanding the recovery/healing process, resiliency and empowerment for sexual violence survivors. Her future scholarly plans are to conduct research that focuses on Latina/o immigrants who have experienced rape and sexual violence at the U.S./Mexico border. Having been born and raised in California , her Latina heritage serves as a foundation of strength as it has heavily shaped her personal and professional development. As she has received much mentorship throughout her academic career thus far, she aspires to continue building strong, professional relationships with others who are passionate in increasing the pipeline for Latina/o scholars. She is a proud member of various organizations including the Latina Researchers Network, the National Latina/o Psychological Association and the American Association for Hispanics in Higher Education.
