Co-Founder of Island Insider Magazine

“Forty-something, coffee addict, snow hater and internet nut. I split my time between my homes in the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico, where my family is originally from.  I am a  real estate agent in the small resort town of Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic- and am a firm believer in giving back to the community, supporting a number of local charities and community events.”

Founder, CEO of I Heart DR  www.iheartdr.com

“I have been traveling cross country for more than 15 years now and I’ve fallen in love with my country. I am passionate about the Dominican Republic and on a lifelong mission to give others the opportunity to create their own love story in the beautiful Dominican Republic. I’ve done my share of traveling around the world and know exactly what tourists search for when visiting a new country. I helped create iHeartDR as a fellow traveler and most importantly as a knowledgeable local.”
