I am a personal injury Attorney. I have my office in Pflugerville, where I dedicate my days to meeting people drastically affected by a severe injury after an accident. I help them by claiming the insurance companies the fair and monetary compensation they deserve. Every day it’s fun and interesting. But probably the most important part of my day is when I get home to be with my two kids Lucia and Joaquin and my husband Chris.
What has been your biggest professional achievement? A multi-million settlement that I obtained for a widow that I fiercely represent after her husband died in a trench collapse while working in Austin.
What experiences and past roles have led you to where you are today? Being a missionary every December break during my youth years in the most deprived and remote areas in the Mexican mountains.
What is the biggest career challenge you’ve had to overcome? Definitely, just by existing in my line of business, it’s greatly overcome. Imagine being a Female Latina with a thick accent and intentionally getting into a career where men (usually white) are still the predominant profile.
What tips or advice would you give someone starting a new job? Use your time in learning not impressing.
If you could pick any superpower, what would it be and why? Time traveling! Are you kidding me? Imagine being in Paris for dinner then come back to read a bed story to your kids.
If you had three wishes, what would they be? 1. World peace 2. Have teleport powers 3. Financial freedom for the rest of my life.
What would be the theme song of your life right no? Jingle bells! I love Christmas!
Best local restaurant? North Italian and Blue Sushi Sake Grill.
How would your best friend describe you in three words? Hard worker. Patient. Loyal.
Who is someone who’s made a big impact on your life? Why? My daddy. He was my example of humblesnes, honesty and care for others. .
Fun fact: Nobody knows where I am during the first hour of my day. My family thinks I am at work, and my staff believes I am at home, but from 7:30 am to 8:30 am, you usually find me at “Pecan coffe” my favorite coffe spot in Pflugerville where I can read in peace for an hour.
