Bogotá, ColombiaLicensed Realtor
I was born in Bogota, Colombia where I spent my childhood. I really liked living in the big city for many years until my father’s job transferred him to Texas where we ended up living in a small town. The adjustment was a little difficult at first but in time, I learned to appreciate and eventually love the small town way of life. I have always had a knack for entertaining and being hospitable. This natural ability encouraged me to study hotel and restaurant management at one of the best schools in the world, The Conrad N. Hilton College of Hotel and Restaurant Management at the University of Houston, where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Hospitality. I worked for many years in a wide array of establishments ranging from small operations to five star restaurants and hotels. I was able to accomplish this in different areas of the country including Houston, Fort Lauderdale and Denver. I am fluent in English, Spanish, and proficient in French. During my time in the restaurant industry I discovered yoga and became a certified yoga instructor. I started teaching classes while I was still working in the restaurant industry.
After the arrival of my daughter I ended up leaving the business and decided to concentrate on my family. I continued with my yoga practice and after the birth of my son I was able to begin teaching yoga again. In 2005 I came to Tulum, Mexico for the first time and instantly fell in love with the area. Tulum then became our family’s yearly destination for summer vacation. It became apparent that we, as a family, wanted to establish more permanent roots in the Riviera Maya. We contacted Investment Properties Mexico and they guided through our first real estate purchase in Mexico. Since then we have trusted IPM to assist with many more deals. The professionalism and genuine dedication of the owners impressed me so much that I decided to move my family to sunny Mexico. Now that I am a salesperson at IPM I strive to continue to give the same service that I received as a client. I am happily married and live in Puerto Aventuras with my husband Jamie, our two kids and one bunny.
