It is with a heart filled with gratitude that I share with you a little bit about myself.  

Born in San Turce, Puerto Rico to a Dominican mother and a Puerto Rican/Spaniard father, my aptitude for entertaining began at a young age in Puerto Rico performing in numerous children's productions.  A performing arts program at Alief Middle School afforded me the opportunity to compete nationally in different artistic genres.  After graduating high school I earned a cheerleading scholarship and student government grants which helped me receive degrees in Theater and Finance allowing me to focus on my academics while at the same time providing me with the artistic outlet I craved.  My tenacity and perseverance led me to graduate from Long Island University on the Dean's List and hit the ground running with the lead role in the nationwide tour of the Off-Broadway hit Yo Soy Latina! produced by Latino Flavored Productions, Inc along with various other Off-Broadway productions and independent films.  While pursuing my passion of performing, I put my finance degree to work by managing the Latin American business line at Brown Brothers Harriman & Co. on Wall Street.

I currently serve on the Board of SAG/AFTRA Atlanta and the Board of Women In Film and Television Atlanta along with numerous other local and national organizations. 

Sat Nam!

May the long time sun shine upon you,

All love surround you,

And the pure light within,

Guide your way on!
