I was born in the beautiful and tropical country of Colombia. I grew up in the outskirts of Medellín, the City of Eternal Spring and the 2013 recipient of the Innovative City of the Year.
During the Christmas season of 1996, my parents and I took a trip to New York on vacation. We fell in love with New York and decided to stay and start a new future here. We have lived on Long Island ever since, but still go back to Colombia to visit.
From Pre-k all they way through high school, I attended the Mineola School District. I was in honors and AP classes, was President of the Student Service Center, played on the football team for six years, and graduated ninth in the class of 2011.
The best Christmas present I have ever recieved arrived in 2013 when I came home for winter break, and was welcomed by the newest addition to the family: Rocco, an English bulldog and my little brother. Check out his instagram account: @rocco.the.bully
In May 2015, I graduated from Cornell University with a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Information Science, with a concentration in human-centered systems. While working on my degree, I grew passionate towards and became attracted to the design world, in particular user experience design.
I was welcomed into the Experiture team as the Product Manager for the Experiture and Easypurl platforms. As the product manager, I have ensured the release of bi-weekly updates by leveraging user feedback, conducting QA to test the UI/UX and identify bugs, organizing and prioritizing issues, and liased between clients, the CEO, and the design, development, and engineering teams.
