Alba was born in Mexico and has lived in the Roaring Fork Valley since she was nine years old. She has worked in corporate jobs and lately had been self-employed as a professional nanny for the past four years. After recently becoming a mom, she has switched gears to help in the non-profit sector. Alba’s long-life passion has been to show and teach children that they matter and that their voice is important. She is also a certified health coach which has allowed her to gain the know-how on talking to others about their well-being, and what to do to achieve better physical, mental, and emotional health. Other than caring for her son, Alba enjoys traveling and learning about other parts of the world and their cultures. She also likes to ski in the winter and hopes to start and be able to successfully maintain a vegetable garden.
