Native to the Las Cruces area, I graduated from Gadsden High School and started college at DACC.  At DACC I earned an associate in architectural drafting, which paved the way to my first job for a local architectural firm.  While at DACC I took part in DAGA (drafting and graphics association), and I was the secretary for two of the years that I was there.  I was also a student assistant and enjoyed my time assisting students with CAD techniques.

 After working for 18 months I decided to go back to school to get a degree in Architecture.  I then moved to Lubbock where I attended Texas Tech University and earned both my Bachelor's and Master of architecture.  In the meantime, I worked at the architecture library and interned during the summers for ASA Architects.  Upon graduating I had a job for ASA and came back to Las Cruces.  I have been with ASA since and have worked on several projects one of which I am proud to take part in, the DACC Hatch Campus.  Other current projects include the new high school and the performing arts center for NMSU.

 Outside of work I love my time with my husband Rocky and my two little girls, Brisa and Adriene.  I have taken a great interest over the last couple of years in photography and landscaping/ design.
