Suzanne was born in California and moved with her family to Las Vegas, Nevada at an early age. She is the first in her family to graduate from a University in the U.S., attaining an Associate of Art degree at the College of Southern Nevada. She also graduated with a Bachelors in Political Science and a Minor in Philosophy, with a concentration in Law and Justice, at the University of Nevada - Las Vegas. At both institutions she helped establish and cultivate, the Student Education Advocacy Union and People Power, student organizations of which both aim at giving students an opportunity to advocate for themselves and others.

After graduation, she interned at Senator Catherine Cortez Masto’s office where she helped constituents receive federal agency assistance. In her time there, she ensured that Spanish-Speaking constituents would have the opportunity to communicate their needs. In her time there, she drafted a resource guide proposal for Nevadan’s looking to re-enter society after incarceration. She is passionate about serving underserved communities and will make it her purpose in every stage of her life. When she is not working, she is spending time with her loved ones, playing video games, or going to the gym.
