I’m originally from Colombia and came to the States (Miami, FL) when I was 8 years old.  I attended Johnson & Wales University (North Miami Beach Campus) for my undergrad and Florida International University for my MBA.

What led you to a career in financial services and how did you find your way to Investors Preferred?

I was always good with numbers and in high school I took Accounting as an elective.  I found it interesting, so I pursued it after graduating high school. I was working in the Real Estate business as a property accountant for 10 years.  

A colleague of mine had left RET and was working for MAS Svc (partner of IPL) and told me about the opportunity to work as an accountant for an insurance company. I interviewed with Nikki, and she gave me the opportunity to be part of the team and have been here ever since.
