Ximena was born and raised in Mexico City and has called Albuquerque home for almost twenty years. She is married and has three little ones that she is raising bilingual. Since recently becoming a stay-at-home mom, she's rediscovering Albuquerque (and life) through a new lens. You can find her begging her kids to read a book in Spanish or attempting crafts with them off of Pinterest. If there is spare time, she'll be listening to true crime podcasts or browsing healthy recipes that she hardly ever cooks. She loves traveling and experiencing different cultures and truly dislikes talking on the phone -text only, please! Ximena volunteers with the Birth Companion Program at UNMH. She believes in supporting women during the transformative time of childbirth. She is very passionate about birth and believes every woman deserves support regardless of her situation.
