Experience

Biography

I’m a Mexican immigrant, born and raised in Mexicali, B.C. México. I come from a family of schoolteachers. I’ve served my community for more than 20 years, as a teacher, a mentor, supporting women victims of domestic violence and families in need. I’ve been an advocate for children and families, as a radio host for different Christian stations, a column writer for La Prensa Hispana Bilingual Newspaper, a children’s pastor and women’s leader. I currently serve as the executive director for Alliance To Protect Children, a statewide grassroots organization advocating and defending the innocence of our children, and dedicated to inform, educate, and activate parents, community and taxpayers on issues that impact our children’s health, safety, and education. I am not a career politician, I am a mother of 5, a woman of faith, and an educator, and I’m taking a leap of faith because young generations deserve better than what we are leaving behind for them.
