I was born and grew up in Mexico City where I attended a Catholic School and a Catholic University.

I earned my BS degree in Actuarial Science from Anahuac University in Mexico. I also have a MS in Statistics from the University of Madison-Wisconsin and an MBA from Oakland University.

My husband and I got married in 1992 in Mexico City. We lived in Michigan where we started our family. We have two children, Alex and Michelle. My family and I moved to Sammamish at the end of the year 2000. At that time, my son Alex was in second grade and had the opportunity to attend St. Joseph School. My daughter Michelle joined St. Joseph’s pre-school in the fall of 2001. Since then, I was actively involved as a volunteer in the school; from helping in class, to taking care of the church grounds, to taking care of the inventory for the auction. In 2001, I was offered a position to teach Spanish. As my kids grew older and I had more time, I taught Spanish in middle school and I helped as an aid in Snoqualmie. Eventually I started teaching math in the middle school.

Since I was young I loved to interact with kids and had a desire to become a teacher. St. Joseph gave me the opportunity to combine my love for teaching kids and the subjects that I love. I enjoy every moment in the class room, teaching to, sharing with, and learning from my students at St. Joseph School.

Blessings,
