I am a lifelong resident of Lorain, Ohio. I, along with my husband, Ray, have raised four children and are proud grandparents to six grandchildren. I am a fierce advocate for the Hispanic and Latino community and serves as State Commissioner on the Ohio Commission on Hispanic Latino Affairs. I devoutly serve my parish, Sacred Heart Chapel, as its President of Parish Finance Council. I spend my free time volunteering and championing for those causes that I am most passionate about.
