I found out about Mountain Park from a family friend who was a long-time board member here. I knew Mountain Park would be a perfect fit for me because of the diversity both in the employees and the patients. It’s amazing to me how patient-centered Mountain Park is and how the organization focuses on breaking down barriers to healthcare, and I wanted to be a part of that.
Currently I work for a government affairs firm doing international business consulting. As a Latina, I come to Mountain Park with a knowledge of the Spanish language, as well as expertise in government policy at the federal, state and local level. I have a journalism background, so writing and communicating with people comes with ease. As an Arizona native I really understand the needs of the community.
I come from a huge family. My mom is one of five and my dad, one of nine children. I have many aunts, uncles and cousins and I love spending time with all of them. When I’m not working or spending time with my family, I enjoy staying active and cooking. I’m a huge foodie! I travel a lot both in the U.S. and internationally, and love exploring the unknown. One of my favorite cities I’ve traveled to is Buenos Aires, Argentina—but don’t tell that to my Chilean friends (I lived in Santiago, Chile, for almost a year and a half, and Chile and Argentina have friendly competition…in just about everything).
