I’m an immigrant born in Michoacan Mexico in the early 70s. I was brought into this Country in 79′ (through no fault of my own)
and was raised in San Jose, CA. I’m a married woman and mother to 4 amazing children, but also a proud Navy Mom.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my little family traveling and enjoying the outdoors; hiking, skiing, camping, jet skiing, and just having fun!

My RISK assessment will determine, if I’m qualified to accept your assignment or take you on as a client.
