I am a civic entrepreneur that has been organizing policies and social movements in the city of Indio that advance access to health, mental health, affordable housing, women’s health, immigrant dignity, small business development and arts and culture. 

My parents had the privilege to legally migrate to this country from Mexico, when I was three years old. Continuing my family’s hard work ethic and scholar studies, I attended College of the Desert and California State University San Bernardino, where I received my B.A in Psychology and volunteered for various non-profits during my undergrad.

I am actively engaged in civic participation with the city of Indio. I convene with residents, local leaders, city officials, business owners and vulnerable communities to streamline equitable community development. I am looking forward to integrating my community work experience as the next council member for district 5.  My community values will continue be dedicated to working on:
