A little bit about me...

I graduated from the University of Texas Pan American with a degree in Criminal Justice and a minor in Sociology – but it was my passion for helping others and a little bit of luck that led me to Affordable Homes of South Texas. In the last nine years, with earning numerous counseling certifications and becoming a HUD certified counselor, my passion for helping families achieve their goals has only grown.


My family means the world to me which is part of my motivation for wanting to help families achieve financial success and homeownership.  In my seven years as a Homebuyer Advisor, I have really enjoyed helping customers break habits of living paycheck to paycheck, build positive savings habits, and realize that all financial goals are obtainable. I would love to help you do the same! Set up an appointment today!


I look forward to working with you to meet your financial goals! Make an appointment today!
