Hello Webb County, I have been your Family & Community Health Agent since 2016. My goal is to provide resources and fun, educational programs to the amazing Webb County community. Born and raised in Laredo, I know our city and county have so many great things to offer as it blossoms into an interactive community of new experiences, influences and opportunities. I’m glad to work with schools, centers, and organizations to bring food & nutrition programs, gardening and increase volunteerism in such areas. I look forward to working with my community and making it the best it can be.
