I fell in love with the restaurant industry at a very young age and an education beyond high school was not in my future. Pursuing my love for the restaurant business was the way I spent my college-age years. For the past 23 years, I have been working to master every single title in the industry. I believe life has given me a diploma of its own, allowing me to do what I absolutely love doing every day. My management philosophy is to provide a team oriented, nourishing environment that allows people to grow and become the best they can be through positive leadership, encouragement and guidance. The ultimate goal is always to provide an exceptionally distinctive guest experience.
I'm the first Latino woman to serve as Managing Partner of Capital Grille Restaurants and I was honored to be named Hispanic Business Woman of the Year by the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce. I'm extremely active in the TRA and in our local Tarrant County chapter, currently serving as chapter president. Community involvement is also very important to me and I serve on the boards of Downtown Fort Worth Inc., Tarrant County Food Bank and Ronald McDonald House.
