Tell us a little about yourself and what led you to your job here leading the maintenance team at Highland Park Village?

I was born in Nicaragua and moved to the United States when I was 15. My favorite sport to watch is American football, with my favorite team, of course, being the Dallas Cowboys. I began my career with Highland Park Village as a project manager and was promoted to facility manager. I have really enjoyed my time here. The experience has been amazing, and I look forward to being here for years to come.


How long have you been working at Highland Park Village?

I have been working at Highland Park Village for over five years.


What’s your favorite or most unique thing about what you do?

People assume that since I work at such a luxurious place that I enjoy seeing all the fancy cars and famous people around the Village, but the truth is that the best thing about what I do is helping all our tenants and others. It always makes me smile when I accomplish tasks that benefit everyone.


What do you enjoy most about the Highland Park Village community?

What I enjoy most about Highland Park Village is the family-like environment. It’s as if everyone knows everyone, and it’s truly a home away from home.


What’s a fun fact that most people don’t know about you?

One very fun fact that most people don’t know about me is that in my high school days, I was a part of the school’s Folklorico dance team, and yes, I did dance.


What are some of your favorite spots around the Village?

To be honest, there isn’t a place in the Village that I don’t enjoy. The retail side of the Village offers a variety of styles and trends that I have become fond of. The restaurant side of the Village has opened my eyes to many new experiences, and I love the food, staff, and atmosphere. I always look forward to seeing more.
