I was born and raised in Alamosa, CO and relocated to Taos, NM in 2015. From 2007 to 2009 I volunteered helping my grandfather develop a Neighborhood Watch Program with the Alamosa Police Department, and from 2010 to 2012 I volunteered at Colorado State Veterans Nursing home. From a young age I knew that helping people was what I wanted to do.

In 2015 I started school at UNM where I studied dental assisting. I worked at Taos Dental Group for two years, and in 2019 I returned to UNM and started taking early childhood classes while working full time as a teacher at Inspire daycare. By the fall of 2022 I will receive my Associate of Arts degree and will continue work towards my Bachelors.

I am a wife and mom to three kids, Lylah, Josiah, and Aubrey. My family is my source of strength and motivation. I am excited to be working within the community, and I hope to be a positive role model while helping moms get access to all the resources they may need.
