Maria's "Claim to Fame"

While serving in the U.S. Army as a squad leader in South Korea, Maria was selected to meet with former president Jimmy Carter in 1980. During breakfast, Maria suggested that service men and women be allowed to wear tennis shoes instead of uncomfortable standardized military leather boots during extensive training. This suggestion was implemented throughout most U.S. bases and several bases abroad, and has since led to more consideration in the customization of breathable military footwear, hence increasing performance, and reducing painful orthopedic conditions.

Upon her graduation she was excited to finally be able to pursue a career in Teaching or Resort Management.  Unfortunately, due to the unfair Media discredit to the Dominican Republic in 2018- Aug. 2019, the normally busy resorts were instead laying off employees, and she could not find employment.  How disappointing for her, after investing so many hours of studying and saving her money, all while caring for her son, only to discover the resorts and  were not hiring.

Heidi is sweet natured, and loves to smile.  Heidi learns quickly, and is very mild tempered.  A key asset to her valuable Office Management/ and Customer Service position… Her role is vital to our busy agencies success. Every day is different, and challenges must be conquered daily to keep our North American clients satisfied, and our agency name reputable.

When Heidi is not working, she loves spending time with her handsome 4 year old son, and occasionally dancing and enjoying a healthy fun life.  According to Heidi, having fun is easy because the Dominican culture is known for fun-loving, happy, and family-oriented people.
