El Paso/Juarez native, I graduated from UTEP in 2006. After that, I lived in Everett, Wash where I worked in journalism for Spanish and English publication. I also worked as QA Bilingual Text Analyst and Outreach Specialist before I moved back to Texas.
I enjoyed living near the downtown river in Austin while I worked preventing fraud for a global social media platform. The 2020 pandemic made me realize the importance of spending time with family and when my baby was born the next year, I was convinced to move back to El Paso.
