“La Familia de la Cruz”


La Familia de la Cruz” participated in the only and most popular reality Spanish TV show in Colorado. I was the nutritionist of la familia de la Cruz and appeared in most episodes. Thanks to Live Well Colorado for their support and efforts. We worked together to reach our Latino communities to support them on how to live a healthy lifestyle thru a social media campaign. I was a resource for many Latinos via the most popular social media sites.
