I was born and raised in Colorado, however, my parents are both Mexican and my first language growing up was Spanish. I am so proud of my roots and I hold this very close to my heart. I love Mexico and I am really humbled to be working with Border Partners and being of service for my people, “mis paisanos.”
When I decided to move to Deming, NM I would never have thought that working for a non-profit organization would be an option. The more research and information I received about Border Partners, the more passionate I became about being a part of this amazing project. Serving others and being a resource for my community is my passion and a responsibility I do not take lightly.
After meeting the board members and the founders of Border Partners, I was left speechless for their passion, unselfishness and help they offer to our neighboring country. How they created and established a helping hand without expecting anything in return!
I look forward to a bright future with Border Partners!
