Arlington, Texas native passionate about public service, politics, leadership, business, civic engagement, and sports. I currently serve as Deputy Chief of Staff-DC for Congresswoman Sylvia R. Garcia, who represents the 29th Congressional District of Texas.

Before moving to Washington D.C. I completed a Master’s Degree in History with a focus on Mexican American History and history of immigration to the U.S. at The University of Texas at Austin in August 2019. Previously, I graduated with a B.A. in History and a B.A. in Philosophy, along with five minors from The University of Texas at Arlington in December 2015.

During my time in graduate school, I was selected as a Brumley Next Generation Graduate Fellow at The Robert Strauss Center for International Security and Law, studying United States and Mexico border security policies. Additionally, I served as a 2018-2019 Texas Civic Ambassador, working with a statewide cohort of college-aged Texans striving to improve civic health in Texas.

I have also worked in the Texas Senate, first for Senator Rodney Ellis (D-Houston), and then for Senator Sylvia Garcia (D-Houston) in 2016 and 2017, respectively, and Senator Nathan Johnson (D-Dallas) in 2019. Finally, I have experience, working as a Research Assistant for Dr. James Howison in the UT School of Information and as a Teaching Assistant in the UT History Department.
