About CAPE

csudh-cape-mayra-romo-photoMeet the CAPE Coordinator and Advocate

Hello Toros! My name is Mayra Romo (preferred gender pronouns: she/he/hers) and I am the CAPE Coordinator and Advocate on campus. My role is to provide non-judgmental information and support to anyone impacted by sexual assault/abuse, intimate partner abuse, stalking, and/or sexual harassment. I have been a Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Counselor for over 10 years and have provided support to over 250 individuals.

Interpersonal abuse (sexual assault/abuse, intimate partner abuse, stalking, and/or sexual harassment) can interfere with our ability to focus on school, work, and personal relationships. I am passionate about helping people overcome and eliminate abuse from their lives in order to create a sense of safety and security to pursue any goals and activities.

A little more about me: I am a first-generation college student, the daughter of immigrants from Mexico, and Spanish is my first language. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from UC Santa Barbara and a Master of Arts degree in Psychology from Antioch University, Los Angeles. In my free time, I like to practice a lot of self-care… mostly engaging in dance training, playing with my pet cockatiel Fluffy, and bonding with friends and family.
