I’m a part of the San Antonio Economic Development Foundation team specifically working with the SA Works program to bring employers and schools together by creating meaningful experiential learning opportunities for students to discover new career paths. With close to 5 years in education combined with over 15 years of experience in marketing, advertising, promotions, events, campaigns and most importantly customer service my background is well suited to help the needs of our community through SA Works. Throughout my career in San Antonio I have worked with local businesses to create, develop and enhance their image and branding by providing creative solutions. It’s this outside of the box thinking and people driven attitude that has led to the long-lasting professional relationships I have today.
I got to where I am today with hard work and perseverance which were instilled in me at an early age by my parents. I believe in order to succeed in life you must always be learning and evolving as a person and valuable member of the workforce and community.
