1. Where you are from?

I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California! I love my city. We are lucky to have so many cultures here. My family has brought its own diversity into Los Angeles – my father emigrated from Mexico and was lucky enough to meet my magnificent mother here and raise six kids in a beautiful part of town. I’m a proud Chicana and middle child!

2. What you are into… studies, hobbies, special skills etc..?

Hanging out with my big, loud family is very important to me. Despite modeling full-time, I still try to pick up a few shifts at my family’s restaurant. However, the only green I get in exchange for my labor is Chili Verde.

I have studied psychology and sociology because I am very fascinated by how we are shaped by our experiences, particularly the unique immigrant experience in America.

I’m very passionate about good health and living a balanced life. I highly recommend yoga to anyone seeking healing and ongoing calmness.


.3. Favorite clients from the biz?
Some of my favorites clients include Windsor, Unique Vintage and Bee Darlin.


4. Dreams/goals, any thing else of interest (any other dream clients?)?

Travelling for work is always a blessing. Also, working on projects that allow me to show my personality is a privilege I never take for granted. Oh, and to be the face of Estée Lauder 🙂

5. Career highlights?
Being model of the month for Bicoastal Management, of course. Well, second to being signed by Bicoastal.

6. How did you get into modeling or acting?
I began by modeling for Spanish bridal and quinceañera magazines, which then lead to competing in international beauty pageants. Representing Mexico and the US on a world stage was a formative experience. I then moved onto modeling and Spanish television hosting. Bicoastal has allowed me to cross over into the English market and I am really enjoying the new experiences and relationships 🙂
