A passionate and creative Civil Engineer with a Master’s in Traffic and currently pursuing a MBA; my journey began when I arrived to “the biggest little city in the world”: Reno, Nevada from Chiclayo, Peru in July 1998. Determined to pursue the “American Dream”, I attended and graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno with a B.S. and a M.S. in Civil Engineer. I am a first generation immigrant, who decided to pack her bags, leave her family and friends, and come to the USA to make a dream come true.
