I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to race with the ID Angel team. I am a better rider thanks to them.
My special talent is finding silver linings. My philosophy of life is dream big and live for today. My favourite food is Candy!! All of it, except black licorice and banana flavored candies. The most important thing in my life is to surround myself with people who inspire and challenge me to be a better version of myself. My favourite music is I don’t have a particular favorite because my taste is diverse and depends on the moment, my mood and energy level.
Born and raised in Illinois by immigrant parents from Guatemala, I moved to South Florida in 2001 after graduating from law school. Growing up, I excelled in academics but struggled in gym class. Despite a lack of natural talent, I have tried all sorts of activities from step aerobics and pilates to bowling and kick-boxing. When I tried riding a mountain bike, it captured my heart like nothing else before. Recently, I took a break from triathlon training and racing, which I did for four years, to become the best mountain biker I can be!
