Being Hispanic… Does it have any influence on your business?
Absolutely I have the advantage of servicing my Latino consumers and I understand their culture and the lifestyle, I understand their needs and build a bond for a better experience.
In the face of adversity, how do you decide to keep going?
The need to succeed to set an example not only for my daughter but for anyone who ever doubts they can overcome anything. Growing up as having English as a second language, there are rough times to conquer and it wasn't easy, it still isn't but with the right motivation it's possible.
What is the biggest challenge you have faced?
The change of coming to a new country without knowing the language, not having any friends and meeting and adjusting to a new family I never knew I had, feeling as an outcast is rough when you're a child.
If you could change one thing about your life, what would it be?
Any change that I've ever thought I would want to redo has always turned into something positive in my life and I learned from and has made me into a better leader, friend, mom and business woman.
What was your childhood ambition?
I dreamed of being a lawyer, being the voice of a courtroom and feeling a sense of being important.
Tell us about three people that you admire?
Sonia Sotomayor, my Current Boss-Tom Devito and Tiffany Baehman.
For meetings: breakfast, lunch, or dinner?
What sacrifices on your personal life did you have to make in order to become a business success?
I definitely had to sacrifice my family time, missed many of my daughter's school activities, trips and quality time with her.
What is your favorite quote?
“Success is a journey not a destination.”
Is it difficult to be unconventional?
Sometimes it can, when people can be so quick to judge someone. My accent, my size, and not only being a woman, but a Hispanic woman at that.
Biggest mistake made?
Getting married at a very young age.
Do you consider yourself an innovator? Why?
Yes, because in order to succeed, you need to be a leader, being an innovator is being the best at being and thinking different.
