As Editor-in-Chief of MamásLatinas, I am most excited to be a part of a talented team that is vibrant with ideas. Having been raised (in Puerto Rico) as one of five children in a home that seemed to be always awake and in full motion, I'm your typical juggling mom: after work every day and on weekends it's back on high gear running from here to there with my three amazing kids (ages 18, 16 and 10). I'm a hopeless romantic who enjoys photography, is crazy about shoes, and LOVES to travel!

I know I'm Latina when...

fashion, food and music to me have to be colorful, spicy and loud!
