What is your alma mater?
I attended the Universidad Nacional de Rosario in Argentina where I received a bachelor’s degree in Architecture and Urban Planning.
Where did you grow up?
I was born in Anaheim, California but grew up most of my life in Rosario, Argentina.
What are your hobbies outside of the office?
I love hiking, being outdoors, and spending time with family and friends.
If you could travel anywhere, where would it be and why?
If I could travel anywhere I would travel to Mars just for the experience and the challenges of life on another world.
What would be your last meal?
My last meal would be Bagna Cauda. It’s an Italian dish similar to fondue where you dip sauteed and raw vegetables in a garlic, anchovies, and cream hot sauce. I love how you can enjoy this meal over a long period of time and invite people around the salsa dish for hours so, if this was the last meal, I would make it a lengthy one.
What/who gives you the most joy in life and why?
My husband, my kids, and my dogs give me the most joy in my life. My husband never ceases to entertain me with his goofiness and dad jokes. I have a lot of fun with him, and we love spending time together and traveling as often as we can. My kids are young adults now, but we still spend a lot of time together. I love family dinners and date nights with each of them. Most importantly, all three grew up to be nice people and are deeply loved by their friends, coworkers, and bosses and that is what matters the most to me. My two dogs are a blessing and I love going on walks with them and having them around when I’m home. With them, I always feel protected. 😊
What’s your favorite part about working at HPA?
My favorite part about working at HPA would be connecting with everybody, organizing teams to help them grow and feel motivated, and making sure they are happy at HPA and with what they are doing, teaching, and learning. My absolute favorite thing is to experience the growth of an employee that I’m mentoring.
