On June 5, 2015 Karla Cruz married Roberto Cruze in Ciudad Obregon, Sonora, Mexico. It was a beautiful wedding filled with lots of love and happiness.

At the end of June they moved to Tucson, AZ from Fort Collins, CO (where her husband completed his M.S. in Student Affairs at ColoState), Roberto started his job as a Community Director at the University of

Arizona in early July and Karla started her job as a Coordinator of Desk & Summer Operations at the University of Arizona. Much to celebrate!
