I understand you’ve done some traveling… Tell us about that. I was born in Argentina to Argentine parents. When I was very young, my parents immigrated to the U.S. I lived in the U.S. for 10 years and then we moved back to Argentina for another 10 years, before we returned to the U.S. I met my husband soon after we moved back to the U.S. He is retired now, but he was in the military for almost 30 years, so most of my adult life we’ve been traveling wherever the government chose to send us. I moved with my husband, children, and pets all around the globe for 30 years. We lived in Japan, Germany, Brazil, Honduras, 9 U.S. States. It’s been a super fun ride, and I’ve learned so much about other cultures, people, politics, hardships, and also how different people know how to have fun and what they value most. It shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone, that no matter where you go or where you’re from, family is what matters most.
What would you say is your greatest achievement ever? My kids. Without a doubt, I really outdid myself when I brought them into this world, raised them, and learned from them every day since.
