As a child, Mariana loved to build with her brother’s Legos. Piece by piece, she discovered a talent for engineering and deciphering how things work. She spotted TEECOM at a Sacramento State career fair and has since immersed herself in all things telecom. Daily challenges and a solid team motivate Mariana to push herself, solve problems, and meet clients’ needs.
Mariana grew up in Leon, Mexico eight hours from the nearest beach. So, although there’s no place like home, she loves California living. The beach calms her and it’s her first destination to visit when traveling. Whether she’s kayaking, exercising, or relaxing with a glass of wine and some seafood, Mariana says, “You just can not have a bad time at the beach!”
Our Lucky Strike
Mariana’s family is in the bowling business, so naturally she grew up amongst the lanes and has played competitively since she was six years old. Through her talent, Mariana received a full-ride bowling scholarship to the University of Maryland, where her team won an NCAA National Championship! As a professional bowler, she competed internationally for Team Mexico, traveling all over the world.
Another strong tie in Mariana’s family is food. From a young age, she recalls being taught recipes. As she grew older, Mariana would watch cooking shows every weekend with her father and experiment with new cuisines like Italian, Greek, and Thai.
