District 7

Moving Forward

I grew up in District 7 on Hope Drive, so hope has always been synonymous with home. From a little girl running around the neighborhood to the adult professional that I am today, I owe it all to the fortunate luck of growing up on Hope.  


I graduated with a B.A. in Political Science at U.T.S.A with a Master's in Marriage and Family Counseling at Saint Mary's University, with an emphasis in Systems Theory. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, I have my own Practice, and a non-profit organization. 

My Parents

My Parents are loving and resilient. The examples of my hard work ethic, my faith, and I am a witness to their example for the community service they quietly have done throughout their lives. Because of them, I learned how people can come together for support or charity to provide the basic for those who are less fortunate in our family and our communities. They set the tone for my sense of value. 

Wife and Mother

My Husband, Michael Gallegos, and my son Joshua are two of the most talented people I know. We can drive each other a little crazy every once in a while, but I wouldn't have it any other way.  It's my favorite Think-Tank.

 " System Theory has been one of the most beneficial courses that I took during my education. It taught me how to look at systems of rules, procedures, and behaviors so that one can see where the changes, redirections, or alterations need to take place to order to get the results you're looking for. Basically, it's knowing where to throw the monkey wrench."
