BACKGROUND

Born and raised in Venezuela, BJ came to the United States to pursue a college education and received a Bachelor in Science degree in Psychology from the University of Florida in Gainesville.  She then went back to Venezuela where she continued Post-Baccalaureateand graduate work in Marketing and Business Management.  She returned to the United States years later and further developed her coaching and sales skills through highly specialized courses and received extensive coaching by industry experts like Tony Robbins and Mike Ferry.

Daughter of very loving, family oriented parents, BJ grew up enjoying the diversity of her own family.  Her father immigrated to Venezuela from Vera de Bidasoa, Spain, a very small town in the beautiful Province of Navarra.   Visiting Spain and specificallythe Basque country from a very early age,  BJ learned to love the heritage, customs, food and stunning landscape of the region.  Her father taught her respect, discipline, honesty, loyalty and to love her roots and her distant, but yet, very present relatives.

On the other hand, her mother, born and raised in Venezuela, the daughter of hard working tobacco farm owners, showed her to love traditions, to be caring and strong at the same time, to be honorable,  to be the best mother she could be and to always be kind and thughtful.  BJ grew up surrounded by loving relatives and experienced unforgettable gatherings with her parents, siblings, aunts, uncles and cousins.

BJ is the mother of two young women.  She describes motherhood as the greatest gift life gave her.  She often travels the US from coast to coast making sure she is present in all of her daughters’ special moments.
