She was born in the beautiful coastline of Honduras inside one of her parents’ restaurants. Karla grew up in her family’s town of Rio Coto surrounded by lush mountains, and rivers. She spent most of her time playing on the beach. From a very early age she was able to grasp the powerful understanding of what customer service really is. Whether you are a business owner or employee you must understand that you are providing a service to your clients.

Entrepreneurship mentality has been part of her life since an early age. She gained experience in what are some of the fundamental rules in being successful regardless of the industry or business. She lives by the basic rules of the business world – “People want to do business with people they know, like, & trust”.

Her understanding of this basic golden rule has helped set her apart. People usually tell Karla that she is a lucky woman. A phrase on which she doesn’t agree with at least not to its entirety. Luck is only a small part of success. True success comes from never giving up on your goals, working endless hours, always staying on top of your game, continuing your education in your chosen industry, compassion for others, respecting those that you conduct business with, thinking outside your parameters, taking calculated risks, having faith in God & in yourself, being fair, honest, transparent and most importantly you gotta love what you do.
