How long have you worked for the County?   3 Years 11 Months

What do you like most about your job?  I love working with the little ones and see that they are getting a great start in life.

Why did you decide to work for the County?  I love working with rural communities and especially bringing the necessary services to those that have challenges in obtaining the services.

What is your most memorable accomplishment during your County career?  Seeing the impact we are making in the community and in the lives of families.

When I'm not at work you can find me... Teaching Zumba, dancing, creating routines, and especially with my family.

What was your first job? I used to work for Oakland Unified as a TV Host on a show named "Homework Hotline", where we used to help kids from Oakland to complete their homework through the television show.

 What is your favorite food?  There are so many! I love to explore and try new recipes from different places of the world. But, if I had to choose one, it would be my mother's tamales.

What is your favorite kind of music?  It really depends on my mood. When I am happy I love to dance, so any music that has a beat; Salsa, cumbia, bachata, reggaeton, hip-hop, regional Mexicana, etc.

What is your favorite sports team?  Due to growing up in Oakland, of course it is the A's and Giants for baseball, Raiders for football and Warriors for basketball. Also, being from Mexico and growing around soccer, my team is Las Chivas.

If you were to travel anywhere in the world for a dream vacation, where would it be?  I have so many places in my bucket list, including Bora Bora, Tahiti, Europe, and Caribbean (Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Cuba, etc).

Where do you see yourself in five years?   Licensed, I hope! Maybe having a great time with my family and having new additions to the family, but don't tell my kids that I want grand kids! :) 

Happy Holidays 3
