Learn more about Selena:
Where are you originally from?
San Antonio – born & raised.
Tell us something really interesting about you.
This April, my mom and I will be dancing for the first time in the Fiesta Flambeau Parade with San Antonio community dance troupe, Urban-15. I love challenging myself to try new things and my experience with Urban-15, thus far, has been one of my favorites.
Everyone at SMPS has a story about why they joined the organization. What’s yours?
I was hesitant to join, but I thought it deserved an honest go before I made up my mind. You know what they say about assumptions…
What drew you to the A/E/C industry?
The AEC industry is in the business of creating tangible history. I was drawn to the inevitable verisimilitude of the messaging. I saw the tropes of our industry – the physical work, the strong structures, the industrious people, a completed project’s lasting impression – and I knew I would never be at a loss for content inspiration.
Where’s your favorite place to eat in San Antonio?
Kimura for tonkotsu ramen with chasu. They also have amazing charred edamame.
What do you like to do in your free time?
Consume content (digital, audio, and print) - Reddit, YouTube, podcasts, Netflix, HBO, history books, NY Times, The New Yorker, Twitter, Spotify, etc. I also enjoy practicing yoga, dancing, and spending time outdoors with my husband and pups. I’m rarely bored.
Do you have any pets?
Yes, two pups and one gatito. – Pelé, Karbach, and Yelena.
What would be impossible for you to give up?
My lust for learning.
Describe your ideal vacation.
Karaoke in the morning, spa + yoga in the afternoon, dance party at night – anywhere in the world.
