With community, we can!

About Me

I was born in Albuquerque and love my state deeply. I come from a family of pastors, social workers, healthcare providers, educators, and public servants who have taught me that community is everything. And having lived in rural Nicaragua supporting my parents’ nonprofit to train community health workers, I learned how hard work makes us resilient. I lead with these values, listening first and working not on or for but WITH the community for the changes we need.

Our City and State have entrusted me with some of New Mexico’s largest projects on healthcare and homelessness. I know the challenges we face in our neighborhoods, but I also see firsthand what we can do when we work together.  We can ensure strong and healthy communities for our families; we can address homelessness through bold action that creates housing; and we can make smart investments that fight climate change and support job opportunities for our young people.

As the youngest woman in our State Legislature, I am committed to bringing a fresh perspective, data-driven investments, and long-term solutions that secure a brighter future for our generation.
