I'm the Editorial Assistant at Mamás Latinas. I was born and raised in New York City and graduated from St. John's University as a Journalism and English major, where I was a staff writer for the school newspaper, The Torch, and an on-air host and producer for the school's television club, WRED-TV. I have interned at Parenting, Self, Big Apple Parent magazines, and Hollywoodlife.com. I love everything fitness and nutrition and enjoy trying out new foods. I'm also a movie buff and a fan of the TV shows Breaking Bad, Modern Family, and Arrested Development.I know I'm Latina when...
...my non-latino friends tell me I'm shouting, but in my head I'm speaking in my normal tone of voice.

The human body is both beautiful (have you seen J.Lo's?) and disgusting at the same time. The disgusting part is something we don't think much about.

As much as I enjoy dressing up during the warmer weather, one of my biggest concerns is having some perv look up my dress or skirt. Unfortunately, living in New York City makes this a pretty common occurrence. That's why I was shocked to learn that in Massachusetts it is TOTALLY legal to take "upskirt" photos!
That's just sick!Continue Reading >
When you prepare fruits and veggies, you're probably coring, chopping or peeling off parts of it. While this might make it taste slightly better, you are also neglecting yourself of important nutrients! Whether you get rid of apple skin or veggie stems, you should consider adding them to your everyday diet.
In fact you'll be surprised as to what fresh foods you can eat with the skin and all!Continue Reading >
I hate to be the damper on your day, but I have the WORST news for Chipotle lovers out there. The popular food chain may be getting RID of its guacamole and some of its salsas.
Say it ain't so! Not only that but its prices may ever soar in the near future. What is going on?! The answer is quite depressing and I'm praying that mother nature gets her act together. Otherwise we won't have our delicious guacamole for a long time. But what does she even have to do with Chipotle's food situation? A lot, believe it or not!Continue Reading >
