From 2004 through 2012, and again from 2015 to the present, she has served as Director of the EDASC Latino Business Retention and Expansion program, the only program of its kind to have found long-term success in Washington. The success of this program has been documented in her article in the International Economic Development Journal, “Mindsets that Build Bridges across Cultures and Champion Latino Small Businesses.” With years of experience in education, business and entrepreneurial assistance, she feels we are well-prepared to meet the needs of our talented, underserved population—to the ultimate benefit of our entire community.
