I was born here in El Paso and spent my childhood in our sister city, Ciudad Juárez. I have a passion for business and for helping people -- that is what drives me in my career. I always ask myself, “how can I make a business while helping others?” That question is what led me to a career in business. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting from UTEP. Soon I’ll be enrolling in business school to pursue an M.B.A. to fulfill my business goals.
