I am a proud Latina. I am Puerto Rican from The Bronx, NY (which makes me a United States Citizen - wink!)  My experience being bi-coastal has brought a lot of range to my life and has expanded my vision on how Latinas are perceived on both coasts. 


With the desires to be informed, educated and entertained, I pursued a career in Communications. I am passionate about the truth. I am a news junkie and love to learn something new. Blogger (writer) for Soul of a Woman.blog, with articles featured on ThriveGlobal.com and Co-Host on Table for 5 - Video Podcast on LATALKRADIO.com.  I am CEO of Matafied Productions, Inc., an entertainment company.


My hobbies are reading and singing and dancing...I love to laugh out loud. Married to a fantastic man and mother of two incredible sons.

A proud native of Los Angeles, I was born in Santa Monica, raised in Gardena and the South Bay and LOVE everything about LA and the Golden State!
I AM....
AN ACTIVIST - I believe in standing up for those who cannot stand up for themselves. I will use my very loud voice for them.
A WIFE - I love being married and being married to my husband. We have been a couple for 21yrs and married going on 17! We are writing the book of our life together with many unique chapters. It's a work in progress!
A MOTHER - A dream that I am so very blessed to have come true. Being able to stay at home with my two boys for the past 11 years has been the best and hardest thing I have EVER done! It has been the hardest job I never interviewed for.
AN IDEALIST - I love all things positive and bright! I love white puffy clouds, rainbows, and Hello Kitty. I believe good will always win out over evil. I believe we can all live together even if we don't all agree! I am a glass 1/2 full kinda girl.
EVER EVOLVING - I am not the same person I was in my 20's or my 30's. I don't have all the answers and I am ok with that, sometimes. I want to know and see lots of different points of view. I look forward to broadening my perspective with this new venture of meeting all of you.
