Experiencia Radial:
Locutora y Departamento de publicidad y mercadeo.
Es una locutora muy versátil y creativa. Lee noticias, graba comerciales, es animadora de tarima y hasta cantante. ”La rubia cariñosa" como se le conoce, es sin dudas la voz femenina de mayor trayectoria en la radiodifusión hispana en la capital de los Estados Unidos. Inició en la radiodifusión acompañando a Alejandro Carrasco en el programa “Calentando la Mañana” cuando solo era de media hora de duración. En la actualidad sigue formando parte del equipo estelar de dicho programa que ahora se transmite por 4 horas de Lunes a Viernes.

Aspectos de Interes:
20 años de trayectoria musical. Fue vocalista de importantes agrupaciones musicales internacionales como el conjunto merenguero La terrífica, Las Chicas de Puerto Rico y Las Chicas de Nueva York. Una vez en el área metropolitana alternaba la carrera de locutora con la de cantante.
Anecdota:
Como soy la única locutora entre tantos hombres, me permitieron dos anécdotas en lugar de una.

La primera ocurrió hace muchos años en Washington durante el festival latino.

En plena tarima después de haber presentando al Ex – alcalde capitalino Marion Barry me dí cuenta de que él estaba encantado con la cumbia que tocaba la orquesta así que me atreví a invitarlo a bailar. Fue una sorpresa descubrir que no bailaba tan mal. Creo que desde ese momento por haberme atrevido a bailar con un alcalde sobre una tarima, me bautizaron como la rubia “peligrosa”.

La segunda anécdota que quisiera compartir con ustedes ocurrió en el estadio Robert F. Kennedy de Washington. Nuestro D.C. United recibió al equipo que en ese entonces se llamaba Metro Stars de Nueva York. Me preguntaron si quería hacerle algunas entrevistas a los jugadores del equipo visitante y al responder que si, me llevaron a los camerinos, pero no me dijeron que allí los jugadores suelen andar en paños menores y algunos hasta sin paños. Pues les cuento que logré hacer las entrevistas sin perder la concentración y hasta un masaje terminé dándole al famoso “tanque” Hurtado un corpulento jugador ecuatoriano.
Pasatiempos:
Bailar, ir al cine,leer y ver TV.
