My name is Oscar, I'm originally from Punta Arenas - Chile, the southernmost city in the world. I'm bilingual and bicultural. I bring international professional experience in animal health and science to DCI, but I am most passionate about people, including DCI's students. I hold a university degree from Chile in veterinary science and recently graduated with a degree from the University of Iowa in public health and human studies where my favorite classes were about how to foster social and mental health for all. I love spending time with my wife and two kids, exploring DC and the world, and creating things. I have always believed that education is a fundamental base that every person deserves for creating a more just and equitable world.
