New Leadership Delivering Results for Our Community

Growing up in a service oriented family and the youngest of six children, Chris learned early on in life the importance of giving back to her community. Chris comes from a long line of Bexar County retirees, who collectively have 136 years of service for Bexar County, and who instilled in her an excellent work ethic, the value of dedication and loyalty, and the importance of leading by example in all things in life. 


A graduate of Wheatley High School, now known as Brackenridge High School, Chris was inducted into the “Who’s Who Among American High School Students” in 1985. A year later, Chris began her public service career with the Bexar County District Clerk'f office. Chris has the opportunity to work with former Bexar County District Clerk David J. Garcia. Throughout the years, Chris not only worked under five different elected District Clerks, she also advanced within the Department receiving various performance based promotions eventually serving as Division Chief of Records and Finance. 


In 2019, Chris retired from the District Clerk's office after serving 33 years, and continues to help our citizens most in need through her volunteerism working with various local non-profits.


Chris and her wife, Debi live on the Southside of Bexar County where they are raising their son who currently attends Central Catholic High School and is part of their JROTC program. The Castillos are active volunteers for various organizations such as the San Antonio Food Bank, and are active in the Ministry of the Third Cross where they focus on helping to develop effective models of renewal and service delivery to persons associated with the criminal justice system. Chris and her family have also participated in organizing volunteer groups to distribute food and clothing to the less fortunate who gravitate under the bridge under IH-35 at Cesar Chavez Boulevard and gather for worship.
