Like many San Antonians, my story is a blend of cultures with my ancestors being European immigrants and Mexicans who have lived in Texas since it was part of Mexico. I have a passion for public policy because it sets the foundation for the justice and opportunity we all seek.
A proud Clark HS grad, I earned my master’s degree from the LBJ School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas and joined the New Leaders Council SA Chapter in 2017 followed by the Alex Briseño Leadership Development Program in 2019. To help raise community voices in public policy discussions, I have volunteered my time serving on Boards for MOVE Texas and the US Green Building Council San Antonio Chapter, as well as citizen advisory committees to local government.
In May 2021, I ran against a 3-time incumbent for City Council District 1 and won in a run-off election on June 15, 2021. I strive to have a strong constituent-based office that will help San Antonio hold elected officials accountable through transparency and encouraging public input for the citizens of District 1 and San Antonio.
I currently sit on the following City Committees: Audit & Accountability, Economic and Workforce Development, and Public Safety and represents the City on the Alamo Area Council of Governments Board of Directors.
I am running for re-election to our City Council District 1 because my work is just beginning in support of my neighbors and businesses in D1. Strong communities depend on leaders who both listen and collaborate, and I look forward to working with you to continue to build an inclusive community that lifts up ever San Antonio voice.
