Polished had Rocio at hello. For the past 4 years, she has loved leading with and serving some of the smartest, most talented and accomplished women of Dallas. Connecting with these women to share life and how faith plays into different areas of it makes her heart happy. Her story is a gamut of interesting twists and unexpected, sometimes painful turns. She strives to navigate life through desperate dependence on Jesus and great community - making what lies behind Doors B or Doors C much sweeter.
Rocio is a self-proclaimed foodie and coffee is her love language. Good food and good people is her mantra. A few of her interests include exploring new restaurants, globe-trotting, spontaneous trips to White Rock Lake, her pup Xena (the Warrior Princess), the beach, cultures and social justice.
