Eloise Gomez Reyes spent her life fighting for families in the Inland Empire which is was of Los Angeles (Riverside-San Bernardino-Ontario area).  She was born and raised in Colton, California. She worked her way through San Bernardino Valley College and the University of Southern California.  She earned her law degree from the Loyola Law School and returned to Colton.  There she became the first Latina to open her own law office in the Inland Empire.
 
In addition to representing her clients, Eloise donates her time to multiple charitable community organizations.  
 
Growing up in a working class family, Eloise saw her parents struggle to make ends meet.  Her father at one time worked in the coal mines in New Mexico and moved to California. 
 
When Eloise was 12, she began working summers in the agricultural fields as an onion topper along with her mother and brothers in order to earn money to buy school clothes.
 
Currently, she is running for Congress in the 31st district which is suffering from the same financial instability her family felt.
