She earned posts on the executive board and political action committee of the Austin Firefighter Association, Local 975, and she represented firefighters during two contract negotiating cycles.

After six years with the fire department, Garza left to attend Gonzaga University School of Law and was later hired by the Texas Attorney General’s office, where she worked in the Child Support Division.
