Flor moved to Austin in January after spending 14 months teaching in Thailand. Previous to Crossroads, Flor served in ministry through various leadership roles, where she developed a passion for younger generations and the marginalized. An alumni of Texas Tech, she has a hard time admitting she’s now a longhorn as she pursues her Master’s in Educational Psychology at UT, but has no problem admitting she only jogs to counterbalance her love of ice cream. During her free time you’re likely to find her either reading, or listening to podcasts with a bowl of watermelon in hand.
