Diplomatic career

Espinosa joined the Foreign Service on September 16, 1981, serving at the Mexican delegation to the United Nations in Geneva. From 1992 to 1997 she worked at the Mexican delegation to the United Nations at New York City and served as general director of the Ibero-American Summit and the Summit of the Americas.

She was promoted to Ambassador within the Foreign Service in 2000 and served at the Mexican Embassy in Germany from January 2001 to June 2002, leaving the post to serve as Ambassador to Austria, concurrently with a number of international organizations based in Vienna, from June 2002 to November 2006.

On November 28 2006, President-elect Felipe Calderón announced that she would serve as his Secretary of Foreign Affairs starting on December 1 2006. Her priorities included the diversification of the United States-Mexico agenda (heavily concentrated on immigration and security issues) and the rebuilding of diplomatic relations with Cuba and Venezuela, which were heavily strained during the previous administration.
