LEADER | ADVOCATE | PROBLEM-SOLVER
I’m a proud Southeast Austinite and an experienced community leader on education, health equity, and transportation.
I was raised by a Mexican immigrant mother and Military Veteran father from El Paso. My mom and dad taught me and my siblings the importance of education as an opportunity equalizer and raised me with the values of hard work and service to the community.
At every opportunity, I’ve championed, invested, and advocated for social justice issues in Austin spanning the range of criminal justice, public education, community, transportation, and women’s empowerment.
From the state capitol to city hall to the boardroom, I’ve always stood on the side of the underrepresented and most vulnerable communities in the fight for equity. I’m committed to amplifying the voices of my community in this critical moment of change in Austin.
