I was born in Aguascalientes, Mexico. My dad crossed the border in 1985 and in 1986, my mother, brother and sister and myself followed him searching for a better life. My dad came to the USA in search for a job, we followed him shortly after. I am from Mexico, and I love my roots but my home was California and now, Nevada. I am proud of everything my parents have done to get us where we are today. And I am extremely proud to be called an American Citizen and to give back to the country that gave us an opportunity to succeed. I am a Mexican woman, a mother, a wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend, and an ally!

I got my Bachelor's degree in Business Marketing from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, CA. I am also part of a sorority called Alpha Pi Sigma Inc. I graduated from college and got offered a job as a case manager at a nonprofit institution that worked with disconnected youth. This job helped me discover that promoting higher education was my career path. Helping students accomplish their educational goals brought a warm feeling inside and a sense of satisfaction that I was giving back to my community. Then I got a job at Universal Technical Institute as a Student Services Coordinator, I then got promoted to Registrars and Records Coordinator. Eventually I got married and moved to Reno and got a job at the University of Nevada, Reno as the Support Operations Coordinator and recently got promoted to Housing Operations Manager.
