My mother worked 2 jobs to assist me through my education and help take care of my daughter. Thanks to her, I earned a Bachelor’s of Science in Physical Therapy, a Masters in Health Sciences, and my academic doctorate in Health Studies. Due to her efforts, I am now an Associate Professor and own my own seminar company.

At 20, I left Colombia to start a new life. Although not my original plan, I moved to NY in 2000 to start a life on my own. I left behind my entire family... I couldn’t see my mom and sister for 5 years. This is part of the price that I've paid to achieve my dreams, but I am grateful for my experiences.
