About me

Occupation Intake Coordinator at a Health Care Agency
Location New York, United States
Introduction Growing up, I was never very in touch with my Central American roots but eventually I got over that. Now I spend my Saturday afternoons sashaying around my living room to Sonora Dinamita. Also, I'm a mom! My daughter turned a year old on December 10, 2010 and looking back at her first birthday pictures forced me to make a conscious effort to think about ME, at least sometimes. I can't very well have my little girl having a mom who looks and acts like she could be cast as an extra in a movie about horrific looking vagabond-zombies at any given moment (no offense to zombies because I absolutely love them). No, that just won't do, especially since that's just not who I am! I'm ditzy, I'm nerdy, I'm feisty...I'm a latina mommy!

The squish of mud between your toes; how would you live your life as a frog?

Laid out on a lily pad, basking in the sun. Also, I'd be vegan...I can't imagine eating flies.
