She is married and has 2 children, a 13 year old boy who is in his first year of high school and an 8 year old girl who is in the 3rd grade. Her husband is the director of a radio station. They live in the Nueva Guineau neighborhood, a growing area. They share family expenses because they're a close family, practicing evangelicals.
