I was born in the Dominican Republic in a very small town called Licey, Santiago. I am the only daughter of 5 children. At the age of 15, I came to the United States with my family with a dream to learn English and become a doctor. I got married at the age of 17 and by the age of 20 I had my first child, Franco. Then, 4 years later I had my second child, Jeffrey. After remarrying, I was blessed with the birth of my daughter, Natasha. Today, I am the grandmother of two beautiful grandchildren, Sienna and Adrian.
I love to eat without a filter.
Being a single mom for 17 years and being able to put my kids through college. They both have reached great success in life, but the thing that makes me feel the most proud is how beautifully connected we are! They are my legacy!
I am excited about growing our mission to a national level and be able to provide access to healthcare to over 27 million uninsured people in the USA. I am also excited that I decided to share my story through a documentary "The Triumph of An Entrepreneur Spirit" by Steve Mariotti. This will give me a greater opportunity to make a significant impact and inspire others to know that it is possible to come from an extremely broken place and rebuild a successful life. I have found the enlightenment that empowers me every day to enjoy and appreciate life to the fullest.
