Born in the Philippines, I moved with my family to the United States at a very young age and have been in Virginia Beach ever since. I am the youngest of three daughters to Donato and Lioba, and I am married to my high school sweetheart, Joe. We have a two-year-old son, Noah. When I am not in the office, I love being a wife and mother, spending time with my family, cooking, and traveling.
