I was born in California, from immigrant parents (Argentina and Costarican). I moved to Costa Rica when I was 13. My mother owned a national balloon distribution business. At age 13 I chose not to pursue school instead to help my mother with her business.
After living a tumultuous life in Costa Rica, at age 19 I decided to move with my father in Oregon. My father encouraged me to obtain my GED. It took me a total of 2 weeks to study and pass the test. After I received my GED, I began to go to Portland Community College. I studied the field of Accounting. My father in 2003 passed away of Cancer. The experience changed my whole perspective of life. I then moved to California, where I lived in LA until 2005.
In 2005 I decided to go to New York Hyde Park, Culinary Institute of America. I always had a desire to cook. Then I moved back to Los Angeles in 2006 after my studies. Had a baby.
I examined my life and choose to look for stability. In the field of Insurance, i found great opportunity. As a certified Life, Health and Accident Independent agent, I have been able to help in the community and provide information and supportive services to low income, uninsured and Medicare population. I currently volunteer at the local elementary school.
I love to help.
