I was born in Cuba, and moved to Miami at the age of 5, where I grew up. I have lived here all my life. I studied Psychology and Political Science in college and became a Paralegal.  I was always active and athletic as a kid. Although it wasn’t my major, I was on the modern dance team in college. Because I live near the water, I have always enjoyed all forms of water activities such as swimming, boating, snorkeling, and kayaking. I had a total knee replacement in 2019.
