Private Equity



I’m a 28 year old Mexican with 5 years of experience in Private Equity. I grew up in Mexico City all my life, and hold a bachelor’s degree in Actuarial Sciences. I’m the daughter of two Mexican army members, taught to never quit. I’m curious about life and about what can be done for others. Running is my kind of meditation.
