I am raising two children and am proud to have 3 sisters. After living in Watsonville for almost 30 years I’ve enjoyed sharing the passion & pride of the Latino community as well as the work-ethic of a culturally diverse community. As a child I worked with my farmworker parents in the San Joaquin Valley and the Central Coast in California. I think I inherited my mom’s “green thumb!” I studied at UCSC and received my BA in Sociology. Most recently I found my professional niche as a Language and Cultural Consultant after 20+ years of working in the local non-profit sector. I am grateful that Esperanza Community Farms reflects my values and interests.
