I was born in the state of Tabasco but my family moved to Mérida, Yucatan when I was 2 years old.

Even though Yucatecos do not consider me Yucateco, I do. Don’t tell them, but sometimes I am more Yucateco than they are! I have made it a priority in my life to learn about the culture, the history & especially the food.

Mérida is a gastronomic destination. Therefore, I’ve spent most of my working years in the food industry: focusing on customer service, attending details, & ensuring customers have the best experience they can have. I’ve been fortunate to work in a variety of types of businesses & restaurants.


One of my favorite places to work was El Colon Ice Cream Shop on Paseo de Montejo. It was here that I realized the relationship between owners, customers, & employees. We were all treated like family.

That is the relationship we developed over time; supporting each other and sharing our stories of life’s triumphs and tragedies.

This is my foundation for customer service. I know making clients feel like they are part of a family is the secret to an organization’s success.

I’m also the Operations Manager for SUMMUS Catering Service where we serve exquisite food, deliver excellent service, & connect locals, expats, tourists & travelers over delightful food, artesanal beers & craft cocktails.

To our tour guests who are here on Mondays, we offer a special invitation to join us:

It is our pleasure to treat you to this unique experience on Mondays from 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm.
