Diana Sanchez-GAHP Intern

I was born in California; however, I consider myself a Native New Mexican, because I have been resident of Albuquerque since my youth. My family roots extend since before New Mexico was a territory. I am currently finishing up my Business Degree at Central New Mexico Community College, where I am also employed via their student employment program. I was self-employed for many years, working in Real Estate sale and investment. It was here that I saw the need for affordable housing. My desire to fill the need of displaced homeowners fueled me to get my business degree. Having been given the opportunity to work with GAHP, I have filed the missing link in my journey to find solutions to this problem. My passion and goal is to provide affordable housing through home ownership or rental programs, to displaced homeowners, who deserve this opportunity.
