What is your favorite holiday? and why?

Thanksgiving. It’s a time to reflect back and think of all the things I am grateful for, and share a meal with those I care for.

Name one thing that not many people know about you.

I was born in Mexico. Most people think I was born in Spain, which is so weird. Must be my last name.

What are your favorite things to do while away from the office?

I enjoy relaxing and listening to music and playing with my three dogs.

If you could only eat three foods a day, what would they be?

Spaghetti, Ribeye steak and Mac Salad…all of which is bad for me.

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

An attorney

If you won the lottery, what would be the first thing you would buy?

A house for each of my siblings

If you could go on a road trip with any one person (dead or alive), who would you choose and where would you go?

I would go with my grandmother, and she could choose the place. I would not care.

My family inspires me, especially my mom.
