I am a lifelong resident of District H and proud graduate of HISD’s Janowski Elementary, Burbank Middle School and Jeff Davis High School. Through hard work and perseverance, I became the first in my family to graduate from college earning a Bachelor of Science in Political Science in 2000 from the University of Houston, a Master of Arts in International Administration from the University of Miami in 2007 and a Master of Public Administration from Florida International University in 2008.  


In 2010 I founded Student Vote Project to increase the number of  high school and college age voters actively participating in elections. In the last three years, I have personally registered several thousand students throughout HISD and the greater Houston area!


I have over 14 years of experience working for government (city, county, federal) and nonprofit organizations. 


I also serve in leadership roles in the following organizations:
