Dance Moms' Susan
I am the mother of two amazing children. Joseph is 15 years old and is a very gifted wrestler and football player. In eighth grade he was the Dade County Champion in wrestling and number two in the state. My daughter Jessica is a dancer. She devotes all of her time to dance and I support all her goals and aspirations in this art form.
I am Colombian. I came to the United States when I was 11 years old - it was a dream of mine to live in the States and I have loved it ever since I moved here. My mom was a professional dancer with the National Ballet of Colombia. She toured all over the world and even worked in Epcot Center in Disney for a year. My father was a very respected Captain (pilot). My parents divorced when I was very young and my mother was a single mother with two children. She taught us the valuable lesson of hard work and dedication in everything we did. I am a paralegal and I love the legal field. I have helped many clients and I could say that they have better lives thanks to the myself and the attorneys I work for. My husband is a Traffic Homicide Detective and finds no greater joy than to assist the community.
Yes I am a crazy dance mom but I do it for my daughter and her love of dance. I want to make sure she achieves all of her goals and dreams, especially since I never had the opportunity to do the same.
