My goals have always been Ambitious. My work ethic has always been the same but the woman in me has evolved. Raised by a combination of my grandparents and single mother, I learned entrepreneurship before I realized it.
My grandparents owned a key shop in our little dusty town, Laredo, Texas. My mom was one of the first females in the transportation industry and later shifted her career to a massage therapist who also started the juicing trend before pressed juice bars were a thing. It wasn’t until I lost my mother when she was only 45 years old and I realized she didn’t have health insurance, life insurance, a will, a trust or a guide book to carry me throughout the rest of my life.
I started college at the University of Missouri in 2009 just at the brink of the recession. I learned that my grandparents were victims of the housing bubble and their health was beginning to deteriorate just as they were starting their retirement. After graduation, I came home to take care of my family and work for my family's CPA firm where I found my purpose in tax and financial planning, helping families strategize for the future and really got to see the numbers on how businesses thrive. But my heart was never content with working for someone else.
I craved independence, the opportunity to be challenged and to do things my own way. So I launched my first business, Ambitious Management LLC, where I help guide small businesses and startups through all things tax, reduce their risk and liability, help them access capital, and strategize for sustainable wealth for the future. I am also the Co-Owner of 1802 Social House LLC, a 116 year old historical home in Downtown Laredo where I rent office space downstairs, short term rentals upstairs, and for special events. Most recently, I have also become a partner in Ambitious Arrivals LLC and Movino Investment Group LLC.
At 30 years old, I enjoy a full plate and a messy desk. I am the President of the Webb County Young Democrats, Vice Chair of the Laredo Commission for Women, Treasurer of the Webb County Democratic Party, Treasurer of the Logistics and Manufacturing Association and sit on several other boards and committees.
