Ana believes that the key to her success is persistence, and sincere love and passion for what she does. She hopes to take advantage of all of the benefits that come along with being a bilingual member of the Rhode Island community to spread her message about sleep disorders awareness. “My most beautiful and rewarding task has been being the mother of my two children.”
