Fun Facts

My favorite outdoor activity is hiking with my husband and our dog, Pluto

I am from Villa Clara, Cuba and I am fluent in Spanish

I follow more cats than people on Instagram

I get way too excited about dessert…. I have been told I “Light up” when I talk about ice cream.

I love learning about different baking techniques and recipes. I am currently trying to create the perfect Mousse cakes.

I am passionate about food and I was recently on a cooking show

My favorite Austin activity is exploring all the amazing food spots Austin has to offer!

The best Saturday afternoon includes ice cream, board games, and spending time with those closest to me.
