The gist

Words are my thing. They always have been. I feel so blessed to work as a print and digital editor after almost 20 years in the field. I love what I do. To read more about my professional background, as well as where I went to school, please check out my LinkedIn page

The short version of my story is that I'm a half-Mexican, half-Puerto Rican gal from El Sereno, a neighborhood in Los Angeles that even locals have never heard of. To read some of my college-age ramblings about where I'm from click here

I left Los Angeles for school on the East Coast — Columbia, then Rutgers. I've also lived in Athens, Greece, experimented with domestic life in northern New Jersey and Orange County, and spent a summer in New Mexico. But L.A. is home. My adventure companions these days are my husband and six-year-old son. Other defining characteristics are that I'm a Cancer and a middle child.
