Bridging City Leadership, and the world of technology with education as Vice Mayor of the City of Cudahy, I proudly fight and work for education, health, jobs, city infrastructure upgrades, and economic development. I also am the Director of IT Customer Support for the Los Angeles Unified School District. I have already enacted a new policy aimed at preventing young people from accessing tobacco. I remain committed to a healthier Cudahy and will continue pursuing policies that protect residents.

I strive to be an innovative leader who sees endless possibilities and solutions for the employees and students of Los Angeles. A graduate of California State University, Los Angeles, I've earned my bachelor's degree in Computer Information Systems. I lead coach with Educare Foundation and has been a coordinator for the LAUSD CyberPatriot program for the past seven years they have won three National Championships.

I was a part of the Inaugural group Turquoise Ambassadors last year. We had no idea then that our collective commitment to lung health would be even more critical come Spring of 2020 when COVID-19 hit our Los Angeles community.

I Wear Turquoise (IWT) is an American Lung Association LUNG FORCE campaign, engaging leaders throughout Southern California.

In American Lung Association’s pursuit to ensure lung health for all, its research funding is hard at work during this outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19). A recent discovery is showing great promise for a potential vaccine. Our lung helpline and website continue to be trusted sources of information and support. Reliable resources, including guidance on how to protect yourself and your family from becoming infected, are available during this unprecedented health threat. It is important that this crucial work continue. We invite you to be a part of the solution and help prevent against future pandemics TODAY.

The American Lung Association's LUNG FORCE launched five years ago, uniting women and their loved ones to stand together and fight lung cancer. Today we invite everyone to join the commitment to lung health and for clean, healthy and livable communities for all. Leaders from throughout Southern California have joined us to become IWT Ambassadors to lead the charge toward a cleaner, healthier future.


My individual goal is to raise $1,500 for the American Lung Association. However, together, with the efforts of all our Ambassadors and the generosity of supporters like you, we are trying to raise $50,000 to help ensure their mission stays strong, including OVERCOMING COVID-19 and preventing future pandemics like this! We are stronger together! To “meet” the other Ambassadors and check out how we are making an impact as a whole AMERICAN LUNG ASSOCIATION: I WEAR TURQUOISE. Please support today!
