Loving my role and understanding the impact it had on the world’s wellness, I fell in love with the industry. I am 35 years of age, probably amongst the youngest spa owners in the industry. I love waking up each morning and positively impacting the people around me.” l Now lives in: San Juan, Puerto Rico Proudest accomplishment: Becoming a father to two beautiful girls!
