I am the daughter of Mexican immigrants who have owned several businesses in the South Bay for over 30 years. I am one of 5 children who, at a young age, learned the importance of hard work, but above all, I learned the value of obtaining an education. My parents did not have the opportunity to attend college and made sure to always instill into us the importance of higher learning. I was the first woman in my family to attend a University and through watching my parent’s own struggles, I learned invaluable lessons in business and entrepreneurial skills.

I have worked solely in the practice area of Estate Planning and Trust Administration since 2015. It is extremely important for me to educate and inform our community about how crucial it is to have their affairs in order. Whether it is fear or simply procrastination, in my experience, my Hispanic community is the least likely to have these essential documents prepared. It is my goal to change that tendency. I believe that with my large firm experience, estate planning background and being bilingual, I am well-suited to educate our local communities and I am committed to protect their families in every way possible.

I am committed to educating our local communities about avoiding the governmental process of probate which can rob families of the greatest value earned by them over the years.”
