Wilcox and her husband own El Portal, a local authentic Mexican restaurant. Wilcox was also the first Latina to be elected to serve on the Phoenix City Council.
Wilcox issued a challenge of primary opponent Ruben Gallego's nomination in June 2014. She stated, "I am not trying to push anyone off the ballot, and I am not hiding behind lawsuits filed by others. I am openly calling for Mr. Marinelarena or Mr. Marinelarena Gallego to put his legal surname, including his given name Marinelarena, on the ballot, so everyone has the chance to learn about his experiences and who he really is." Wilcox later withdrew the challenge, and Gallego will appear on the primary ballot.
