Growing up, I learned first hand that as a female Latino I had to prove my worth with each step.
My degree is in French Literature from Cornell University, my professional background is in computer technology, communications, consulting, financial analysis and leadership.
IBM hired me to be a computer geek. There I worked my way up from Systems Engineering, to World Wide Sales Management of Fortune 100 Companies and then to Principal of IBM’s Applications Consulting Practice.I had opportunities in implementations, sales, consulting and in management.
Prior to coming to Summit County, I was Vice President with a fortune 500 software company, BMC Software in Houston. There, I ran a world-wide organization focused on Operations and Production. I managed teams in Ireland, India, Singapore and Houston and San Jose .
While at BMC I continued to be active in the community and served as President of the Fort Bend Education Foundation, during my tenure we provided over $500,000 in grants to the Fort Bend Independent School District – we made sure every school in the district was touched by the generosity of our contributors.
