Lupita has always believed in helping others and helping alleviate someone's pain. She enjoys working at Picacho Family Dental because she is able to grow as an individual and better aid patients' concerns. Lupita enjoys spending/hosting family quality time on the weekends.

She takes the time to read self-improvement books and, in her downtime, she rewatches Harry Potter movies.
