SAN ANTONIO - Growing up, Ruby Trejo always wondered why criminals committed crimes, so she decided to go to school to get a better understanding. Her goal was to become a criminologist. Sitting through her final semester of major courses, Trejo realized her emotions would not allow her to realistically become a criminologist.

 

 

 

    Trejo was born and raised in El Paso, TX and says, “It was great growing up in El Paso. El Paso is a small city in West Texas that is very family oriented. It is a very close-knit community.”
    She graduated from Del Valle High School, “Go Big Bad Blue,”  before attending St. Edward’s University in Austin, TX. “College life was great. It was nice moving to a city that is as diverse as Austin is. The campus was beautiful and very close knit as well. The  best four years of my life were spent at St. Edward’s.”
    After graduating from St. Edwards with a Bachelor of Arts in Criminology, Trejo went back to El Paso for a short spell, working for a company where she learned about social media marketing. She later enrolled  at The University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio, TX where she earned her Master of Business with a Concentration in Marketing degree.
    After moving to San Antonio, to help pay the bills, Trejo took a job with a temp  staffing agency who placed her in a temp position with  Association Builders & Contractors (ABC) as a marketing and events coordinator. She would work at ABC a little over three years. During that time, Trejo got to know a lot of people in the construction industry and decided working in the construction industry was where she wanted to be, and credits ABC President Steve Schultz as her mentor. “I’ve been able to learn so much about the industry through his guidance.”
    Having decided she wanted to stay in the construction industry, Trejo found herself wanting to be more involved in the day-to-day aspects of construction and went to work for Red Hawk Contracting.  “I am the marketing coordinator and project manager assistant. I manage the company website, social media channels and handle all marketing. I also assist our project managers with their administrative work.
     “I enjoy my co-workers best about my job. At Red Hawk Contracting we are like a family.”
    Fitness is a huge interest for Ruby. She has always enjoyed going for long runs to relax. Recently, Trejo picked up powerlifting. Being able to lift heavy weights is the best way I destress after a long day. “I’ve become so intrigued with powerlifting I hope to compete next year.”
    In addition to the highs of powerlifting, Trejo enjoys seeing live bands perform. She relishes her time with her friends going to the movies and meeting for dinner. -cmw
