Berta was born and raised in the Roaring Fork Valley and graduated from Basalt High School. She is a proud first generation CU Boulder Salvadorean 2019 graduate; BA in Spanish and Portuguese with a Minor in Russian and Leadership. Working with underrepresented communities has always been one of her biggest passions. She believes the government is a tool to further promote equity and inclusion. Which is why she is currently applying for the Consular Fellows Program with the U.S. Department of State. In the meantime, she hopes to be a bridge of communication between Pitkin County and the Latinx Community. A fun fact about Berta is she played for CU Women's Rugby during undergrad.
