We know there is more than one dimension to a person. Therefore, we sat down with Macie to get personal:
• Who is Macie?
I’m from the Big Apple, of Dominican descent with a knack for seeing the positive side of all situations.
• You suddenly have an extra hour of free time, what do you do in this time?
I would read or meditate! It’s so important to take time to center your thoughts.
• Tell us about your home life? Pets, kids, married?
I’m in a loving relationship of 3 years, no kids but I have a darling fur baby who goes by the name of Nyla, a six-year-old Dorkie (Dachshund – Yorkie Mix)
• Any secret talents?
I love to inspire and empower others. I do so by sharing my story on my personal platform, Macielleness.com, where I strive to break the stereotypes placed on Latina’s and body image. I have a bartending license and interior decorate in my spare time.
• Your favorite destination you’ve visited and why?
Riveria Maya, Mexico must be my favorite destination thus far. On this adventure, I crossed out a few bucket list items like zip-lining over 300 feet in the air in the jungle and visiting fresh water cenotes (natural sinkhole, made from a limestone collapse).
• What is a piece of valued advice you have for anyone in the market for insurance?
Be mindful of what your needs are, work solely with a team that understands that your needs are yours. Don’t fall victim to cookie cutter products.
