About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To seek the unknown, live the fullest life, and make some friends along the way.

ABOUT ME

Adventurous, energetic, curious, and open-minded. I love good people, good food, good wine, and a great adventure. I am extroverted, social, and love being around people. I am bilingual, worked on the Texas/Mexico border for many year and now specialize in immigration law and multilingual education for immigrant children. I love cooking and will try any new weird food, adventure, experience I can find. In fact, if it is unknown to me, I want to try it. I work hard and play hard. Lastly, I practice yoga everyday.

PHILOSOPHY

be open minded to anything and everything, don't judge something without trying it, don't just be different, make a difference

Music, Movies, and Books

I love to read non-fiction. Anything socio-political, based on a true story, or about a foreign culture. I'm not a big movie person and like most forms of music. Books are my sweet spot and a person's library tells you so much about who they are.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've traveled in Asia, Middle East, Central America, Africa, Europe, South America and more. That's cool, and some might say amazing, I really just consider it privilege. I think one amazing thing I have done is help 7 students achieve DACA status and serve 100's of students on the Mexican/American border.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach yoga and most things education and immigration. I want to learn about everything that is not "my world". It is why I travel. I am so curious about the unknown. And I will share anything I have.
