Collaborated with the Lobeck Taylor Family Foundation to create Cocina 66 which has now become part of the Foundation's regular programming.

ACCESS TO CAPITAL
I will work tirelessly to ensure all have equitable access to capital.
I am passionate about access to capital for small businesses and minorities. I will share my expertise in traditional and non-traditional lending to ensure small businesses and minorities have equal access to capital opportunities.
My role as a former board member at Growing Together, grew to a consultant role as they launched Avanzando Juntos, "an independent, nonprofit organization dedicated to closing the racial wealth gap, advancing the success of Latino businesses, and building a more inclusive economy in Tulsa." I developed a Spanish-language Literacy Course, designed to certify recipients of the micro-loans given to 11 Hispanic small business owners, who otherwise would not have access to financial literacy or funds.
I believe a thriving Tulsa benefits all of us, and I want to be part of each step forward.
I love Tulsa and the opportunities it offers. For that reason I have
served on many boards and commissions, where I use my platform to advocate for affordable housing, support for immigrants, inclusive economic development, and community non-profits that make our city better each day.
As a Trustee for the Board of Partner Tulsa, formerly TAEO (Tulsa Authority for Economic Development), I've contributed particularly to initiatives that support immigrant businesses and to sharing my knowledge around housing and lending to the work in the housing space. I am fully vested in its mission of Growing An Economy With Opportunity For All.
