Title: Employee Engagement Manager, Human Resources
Years with the Rangers: 6.5 months!
Bio: As part of the Human Resources team, I have the responsibility and privilege of taking care of all employees. Regardless of their status (Full Time or Seasonal), I still provide the same customer care and compassion with their needs. I also have the privilege of leading New Hire Orientations for Front Office employees. I get to excite them about working for the Texas Rangers (if they weren’t already)! I have over 7.5 years of Human Resources experience in the industries of healthcare, food & beverage, manufacturing, aerospace, and business furniture.
What does Hispanic Heritage Month mean to you?
It’s a time of celebration! There are so many different subcultures in all the Latin American countries. Although they’re similar, they’re also very different and unique. To me, it’s just beautiful how we are all connected through the same language (Spanish), despite being on different hemispheres of the world. Hispanic Heritage Month is also a time for me to reflect how far the Hispanic people have come to be a presence in the workforce, in our community, and leadership.
What helps you feel most connected to your heritage as a member of the Latin / Hispanic American community?
First and foremost, staying connected with my family is what keeps me grounded to my heritage. I have many family members in Mexico and catching up with them reminds me of the times when our family vacations were spent visiting them. Any chance I get to speak Spanish with coworkers, I take the opportunity! Being an advocate for the Hispanic population at work also keeps me grounded to my heritage since we share it. My goal is to pass on my heritage to my future children and instill pride to be part of the Latin / Hispanic American community.
