The National Latina Business Women Association
I am honored and humbled to be NLBWA-IE’s 2017-2019 President. Thank you to all our members, Board and sponsors for their dedication to our organization.
As a full-time working mother, wife, and entrepreneur, I understand the difficulty of achieving professional goals while maintaining a family life. In my initial years as a business owner, I struggled to find that work-home balance. Even more so, I struggled as a “double-minority” in my profession. As a young Latina business woman, I faced many challenges including developing my professional skills, establishing a high-quality reputation in my industry, and growing my business. Each day, I strive to maintain all that I have achieved in my business and grow it further. All while raising kids!
My goal as NLBWA-IE’s President is to assist other Latina business women to advance their businesses. I hope to share my experiences (even failures) with our community. I also hope to learn from other Latina business women. No one should struggle alone. I truly believe this organization is filled with women who are dedicated to each other and growing each other’s businesses. As it has been said, “Success is not a goal; it is a journey.”
