Enrique Garcia grew up in El Paso, Texas. His parents were Mexican immigrants who later became U.S. Citizens. His mother was a seamstress at Levi Strauss and his father was a taxi driver. Enrique attended AOY and Rusk Elementary, Bassett Middle School and Austin High School. He graduated from UTEP with a Bachelor’s Degree in Finance and Marketing and a Master’s Degree in Computer Information Systems. He also graduated from Capital Law School and served as a legal intern for the Ohio Attorney General.
In 1998, Enrique returned to El Paso where he met his wife, Norma. He began his business career by working for Ameritech which later became Southwestern Bell as a Senior Auditor where he traveled the U.S. auditing facilities and was instrumental in the data conversion for the acquisition of Bell Canada. He then went to work for a Philips maquiladora plant in Ciudad Juarez as a Plant Controller where he significantly improved operations and profitability. Later he worked at ConAgra Foods as a Plant Controller where he redeveloped the costing system and designed new budget templates that improved the budget process. He started at Helen of Troy as a Senior Cost Analyst and after only six months, was promoted to be the Oracle Financial Business Analyst where he provided support for the financial operations of the entire Finance Department. Enrique then decided it was time to put his law degree to use and became an immigration attorney where he specializes in business, family and litigation matters. He has been helping thousands of families in our region and around the world for over ten years to legalize their status or to open their businesses so as to become an integral part of our community.
Enrique’s wife, Norma, and their two boys were born in El Paso and have always lived in El Paso. She has served the federal government for over 20 years and is proud to call El Paso her home.
