As a champion of change at an early age, Inez created an advocacy effort that encouraged her fellow high school classmates to conduct a letter-writing campaign to re-install after school activity buses. She spoke before her entire high school community to disrupt an unorganized student walkout, to bring about an advocacy effort that led to student success. This effort solidified her desire and passion for advocacy and community service and began the growth of her courageous spirit to speak for others.

Inez was appointed to the Calvert County Board of Education (Board) in 2019, and in 2020 won her first 4-year term on the Board where she currently serves as Vice President.

Her leadership fortitude catapulted her into positions as Board Vice President in 2019 and 2022 and Board President in 2020 and 2023. In 2021 the Maryland State Educators Association awarded Inez their Minority Recognition Award for Leadership.
