Civic Leadership

Dallas Park Board, Member


I served on the Park Board, becoming the first Latina to serve and represent Oak Cliff / Dallas. I also served on the Gang Intervention Committee.

It was a time of transition , and I made a difference and contributed positively. Today, the Dallas Parks system  is one of our nation's best.

Former Park Board member, Guillermo Galindo has endorsed me for City Council.

Cultural Affairs Commission, Vice-Chair & Member


I served on the Cultural Affairs Commission for six years, representing Oak Cliff. I worked hard to achieve equity in allocation of funds - focusing on increasing artist and small organization participation.
