I was born in Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico. After college, I taught at a Catholic high school in the border city of Calexico, CA. In the summers, I enjoyed site coordinating for a youth service program in Tijuana, Mexico. In Tijuana, I met and married my husband. We are now happy parents to two vivacious little girls! I am currently studying a Masters in Spirituality at Oblate School of Theology in San Antonio. I feel blessed to be a part of an organization that is dedicated to empowering the people of God.
