What do you love most about Your City?

Miami is an extraordinary city infused with cultures from around the world, rich history, modern & classical art, delicious food, and ample activities throughout the year. There are so many aspects to love as it’s the true gem of South Florida.

Favorite breakfast meal & restaurant?

I typically order Eggs Benedict when venturing out for breakfast. Whether with smoked salmon, Canadian bacon, or a sausage patty, I’m interested! One of my favorite places to enjoy the meal is a lovely French Bistro in Coconut Grove called Le Bouchon.

What are you doing at:

6:00 AM – Alarm goes off- time to get ready to beat the Miami traffic!

10:00 AM – Coffee has thoroughly kicked in and the day is moving along quickly. At this point, I’m getting caught up with emails, checking Four Seasons Hotel Miami’s social media channels, and brainstorming PR & Social Media initiatives with various departments.

12:00 PM - Favorite Power Lunch spot/meal?

The cafeteria at Four Seasons Hotel Miami offers a delicious hot meal on a daily basis with a fresh salad bar and once a week we have frozen yogurt!

7:00 PM - Zumba at Equinox! My favorite type of cardio is Zumba, which is essentially a full body workout disguised by dancing to upbeat music.

11:00 PM – Finished my Netflix binge, off to sleep!

What drink do you need to get through the day and at the end (and how many)?

H2O! I drink water consistently throughout the day and make certain that I keep to one cup of caffeine which I have every morning, 100% Colombian coffee.

Most used App/Favorite Instagram Account?

Other than Instagram for work, my Amazon app is the most used as I love Prime! My favorite account to view on Instagram is Tasty as I enjoy watching the mini cooking demonstrations and learning new and easy recipes.

What should everyone try at least once?

Cruising! Being from Miami, cruising has always been a convenient way to travel to extraordinary destinations. I always recommend taking a cruise to friends and family as it’s the perfect escape without all the hassle of planning ahead.

Where do you enjoy getting lost?

Once I step into HomeGoods, it’s hard trying to find me. I love exploring their unique selection of items, even if I leave empty handed!
