Education: The University of Texas at San Antonio, Bachelor of Arts in Communication & Minor in Mexican American Studies, 2016-2019

Ministry Background: Growing up I was involved in choir and youth group. However, it wasn’t until I went to UT San Antonio that I fell in love with the Lord and became involved in campus ministry. After graduating in 2019, I worked for the Development Department of the Diocese of Tyler and became involved with UT Tyler’s campus ministry.

Passions and Interests: I love dancing, singing and photography!  

How did you become involved with Ablaze/why are you involved? During my time working with the Diocese of Tyler, I had the deep desire to serve the church through youth and young adult ministry. While researching for youth ministry jobs I found Ablaze! I served as an Ablaze intern/missionary in the Spring Semester of 2021. I was engaged during my internship and married at the end of the year. After the wedding, my husband was stationed in Fort Bliss, so we moved to El Paso, TX. I was unable to continue to serve as a missionary with Ablaze due to the move, but now I’m blessed with the opportunity to work with Ablaze once again! I love sharing the mission of Ablaze Ministries through social media and serving God alongside an amazing group of brothers and sisters in Christ!
