I was born in El Llano, Michoacán, Mexico and moved to Napa Valley with my family at the age of 15. I am the 3rd child of 7 children (2 brothers and 5 sisters). I graduated in 1994 from Vintage High School, and on the same year, I was the first child in my family to go to College and graduated with a degree in Business and Finances in 1998. While attending school, in February 1995, I started to work in an Immigration Office. I realized the struggle for the hardworking Hispanic immigrants. Instead of pursuing a career in international finance or work for a large business after graduation, I chose to align my career with my passion for immigration rights. I have established my own immigration services business since May of 2006, helping ensure Napa’s immigrants on their road to legal residency and citizenship.
