I am a Cuban born immigrant who came to the US in 1960. I grew up in New York City and moved to Minnesota with my son and our 2 dogs, a Golden Retriever and a Mixed Breed rescue, in 2012. In between New York and Minnesota, I've lived in Portugal, Spain, France and Florida and spent 15 years as an international banker covering Brazil, Venezuela and Ecuador, before moving into the Financial Services field in 2001.
I am a relatively recent import to Minnesota, so my work within the Hispanic community is only just beginning here.
As a Hispanic female in Minnesota, I would love to see greater opportunities for both Hispanics and women in the business world. Having worked in the banking field in the past and the financial services field currently, I realize that there exists a large educational gap on a financial level for Hispanics in this country. I joined LatinoLEAD in an effort to improve both opportunities and financial education for the Hispanic community in Minnesota.
Besides family, which is what is most important to me, being able to make a positive difference in people's lives is something that I am passionate about.
