We are grateful for the trailblazers who paved the way for all of us in our history and those who make our lives better day by day. We celebrate the life and contributions of our team members, colleagues, and allies this International Women’s History Month.

¿De dónde eres? comparte algo característico de tu lugar de origen. Where are you from? share something typical from where you are from.

I’m from Austin, Texas – the “live music capital of the world” – and a place where cowboys eat granola.

¿A qué te dedicas? What do you do?

I am a program manager. I’m a volunteer with Centro SOL, helping out with youth programs and events.

¿Qué te motiva? What inspires you?

Being part of a team and the opportunity to learn new things motivate me.

¿Qué le dirías a tu yo más joven sobre donde te encuentras ahora en tu vida? What would you tell your younger self about where you are in life?

Sometimes slowing down can actually help you get there faster.

Aunque todo lo que has hecho en tu vida es producto de tus esfuerzos, siempre tenemos personas que nos han apoyado a las que agradecer o recordar. ¿Quiénes son esas personas para tí y por qué? Although everything you’ve accomplished in your life is the product of your efforts, there are always people to thank or think about who supported you. Who are those people for you and why?

I’ve been fortunate to have had some really great bosses in my professional career, people who have looked out for me and helped to connect me with opportunities at times when I had decided to make a change but didn’t know what to do next.

¿Qué significa para ti la equidad en oportunidad para los Latinos? What does it mean for you equity in opportunity for Latinos?

Reaching people where they are in ways that are culturally appropriate to their community.
