I’m a very passionate person about other people’s career progression.

I have lived in 3 different US cities, and currently in Spain.

Big Life Wins:
Recovering from an ankle injury. Doctors told me I was never going to be able to run, play soccer, or (as stupid as it sounds) wear heels. But I refused. I became obsessed with recovering, and signed up to do ballet to strengthen my legs. 5 years later, I’ve ran multiple half marathons, and I do wear high heels. It taught me that anything is possible.
Post MBA Goal:
I want to return to Latin America to either consulting or a tech start-up, to help businesses flourish in a region that has so much potential, yet has had some unique challenges that (in my mind) we will only be able to break through widespread technological advances. I want to specifically focus on startup/projects that help single mothers.
