Thank you for taking the time to visit my website!
Living in beautiful Capitola with my husband and daughter means being committed to ensuring that Capitola is sustainable, safe, welcoming, and family-friendly. I support the vision of Capitola’s residents in maintaining it’s intimate, small-town feel and coastal village charm.
I was born and raised in San Jose, CA by my 3rd Generation Mexican-American parents. I graduated from the Medical Magnet program at Andrew Hill High School, where I founded a non-profit program called Teens Teaching Teens (3T’s). The program was so successful that it received national attention from the Oprah Winfrey Show. I attended the University of California Santa Cruz where I received my bachelor’s degree in Sociology and minor in Education. In 2005 I moved to Capitola where I met my wonderful husband at Zeldas on the Beach and in 2014 we had a beautiful daughter.
For over 10 years I have worked at the Santa Cruz County Office of Education. Currently, I am the Executive Assistant/MIS Technician for the North Santa Cruz County Special Education Local Plan Area. I also serve on the Childhood Advisory Committee for Santa Cruz County and am a Board Member for the Santa Cruz Children’s Museum of Discovery. In 2017 I was the Campaign Manager for the successful election of Martine Watkins for Santa Cruz City Council. Most recently I graduated from the Capitola Leadership Academy.
I am excited and honored to have the opportunity to run for Capitola City Council. To work on behalf of Capitola residents would truly be a privilege.
