My ancestors are from Mexico and Texas. I grew up in Pico Rivera, lived in Long Beach for most of my adult life until I moved to Lakewood where I currently live.

I have two children, married to my high school sweetheart, love to watch reality TV. I am a Cancer sun, Cancer moon, and Pisces rising, which means I am a watery mess.

I was raised Catholic, but I practice a Latina Feminist Theology. Ask me about that some time.

I am innately an introvert, but when I warm up to you, I am loyal and fun!

Feminist mantra: “Who’s got time to wash the dishes when I’m too busy planning the revolution with my amigas!”
