Biggest Challenge

“Work/life balance. I love what I do so much it’s incredibly difficult to shut down the phone and focus on anything else.”

Energy Booster

“Crossfit! Surviving a work out gives me so much energy for the rest of the day.”

Super Hero Power

“Time travel. The amount of time I’m in the car is a travesty! I’d love to be able to snap my fingers and be at my next appointment.”

Favorite Vacation

“I love cruising! I prefer to cruise throughout Europe but have cruised more through the Caribbean as I can then visit my family before and after the trip when leaving from the Port of Miami.”

Comfort Food

“Arroz con pollo (translated: chicken and rice). The translation sounds simple but it’s much more complex…and so good!”

Why Ligris?

“I am a firm believer that energy attracts like energy. A genuine energy of commitment, passion and excellence runs through the firm and that is what attracted me. I am ecstatic to do my job every day not just because of my clients but because of the team I have behind me. I cannot imagine working anywhere else.”
