Adriana was born and raised in a lower socioeconomic area of the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles. She was raised by a strict Guatemalan mother and a Mexican father who both had many side-hustles since they immigrated from their countries. Adriana looked up to them and grew up knowing that she, too, wanted to be an entrepreneur. Adriana’s mission in the spaces she has established is to create spaces in the real world, and virtual world to spark dialogue about mental health struggled and strengths in the Latinx community. Adriana currently lives in the San Fernando Valley with her husband, 13-year old son, 15-year old step-son and their two dogs.
She is available for speaking engagements, workshops, consultations and influencer collaborations. She recently worked with Breyers ice cream and created a digital toolkit on boundaries and taboo topics for multigenerational Latinx households.
