I was born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico, but have lived in Los Angeles for longer than I did in Puerto Rico, arriving here in 1982. I love Los Angeles and was especially grateful for the warmer climate after three years at Columbia Law School in New York and four years at Swarthmore College in Philadelphia. I am a recent arrival in this neighborhood, having moved first to Carthay Square in 2015 and just recently to Picfair Village. You may see me walking around the neighborhood which I do almost every day, often with my rescue pup, Lucy. I am really pleased and excited to serve on the Board and look forward to serving the neighborhood.
