Yolanda was born in Puerto Rico and moved to South Florida at the age of six. Being raised in Miami-Dade did not deter her mother from making sure their culture remained rich through historical traditions which they celebrate yearly. Yolanda is bilingual thanks to her mother’s constant demands for her to read, write, and speak her native language at home. She now lives in North Florida with her 3 children: Leslie, Yandel, and Camila. Her personal time is spent creating memories with her children, traveling, gardening, and woodworking projects. In her spare time, she rehabilitates homes in a mission to provide affordable housing for low-income families and is a board member of the Live for Brie Foundation.
