Three traits that define me: “Optimistic, enthusiastic and cheerful.”

My personal philosophy: “Never let fear get in the way of your dreams and goals. Face your fears. Confront them. You will feel empowered when you conquer what was holding you back.”

Best book I ever read: “The Happiness Advantage by Shawn Achor. It is a great read about how happiness fuels success by using positive psychology. Happiness is the precursor to success, not the result of success.”

Best place I ever traveled to: “Miami! I love the culture. I also enjoy the weather, especially in January when Miami’s warm tropical weather is at its best. Did I mention the food? I love Roja Vieja, plantains, tostones and Cuban coffee!”
