On a personal note

I was born and raised in Oaxaca, Mexico, with limited access to clean drinking water. At a young age, I experienced the repercussions of not having a reliable water supply. This motivated me to pursue a career in the water industry so I could provide safe drinking water and protect our water resources in times of drought.

When I am not at the office, I enjoy trying new foods, cooking, planning my next trip or walking my dogs. I also like spending quality time with my family and friends.
