Damisela Chavira Brown was born and raised in El Paso, Texas. She graduated from Ysleta High School and attended the University of Texas in El Paso. Living in the lower valley of El Paso and having to commute downtown, Damisela Chavira Brown, lived with the daily struggle of having to dodge illegal immigrants running with their children in tow across the Rio Grande on what was then called the Border Highway. She soon realized that she wanted to help those families and began working first as a volunteer then as a student trainer for a caseworker position at the United States Catholic Conference. There she learned the basics of immigration, filling out applications, but most importantly she learned the undying issue of Illegal Immigration and the need for new policies and higher voices within the community.

Damisela Chavira Brown is a mother of five. She has instilled both family and educational values on her children and although they are all busy with sports, school and work, they all find the time to share an occasional family dinner at the dinner table and enjoy a family event at Blessed Sacrament parish.
