In the Community
I strongly believe in giving back to the community and paying it forward. I have gone on several mission trips throughout my education and career and I believe there is no greater way to true fulfillment than by serving the less fortunate. I’m also an animal lover and volunteer for the ASPCA.
Outside the Office
I was born and raised in Stuttgart, Germany. My mother, an Ecuadorean Native and my German father have instilled a great appreciation of different cultures and diversity in me. I am fluent in Spanish and German and English. My multicultural upbringing ignited fervor in me to travel and I have traveled to over 40 countries together with my family and close friends. Despite traveling the world, my home is here in the Big Apple; I like to explore what NYC has to offer being dining out, going for a run through Central Park or exploring hiking trails upstate. I also enjoy spending time with my family, especially my sister and my nieces.
