I run my family’s body shop, Highlands Auto Body, in Littleton and own Colorado Herbal Imports on Santa Fe Drive. I grew up in Littleton, my dad is from Argentina and my mom is from here. I lived in Littleton until I was 17 and then I moved to Denver. I live downtown now but I work down here. My dad started the body shop about 30 years ago and I learned it growing up. Our shop has been in Littleton for about 10 years. We were at Broadway and Yale before that, but Littleton’s been really good for us.
The herbal busines
My family is kind of into rural Argentinean roots and herbal remedies, so I’ve always been exposed to that. We owned the building, so it was relatively low-risk to start. I had a tenant here but they left, so I decided to try something new and we’ve been open for about eight months now, and we’re looking at opening a second location in Glendale.
I fly small airplanes out of Centennial Airport. I’ve had my pilot’s license for about a year now. I have a lot of appreciation for art. I especially love van Gogh. I like to travel a lot. My favorite place to go is probably Iceland. I just got back from a little trip out there.
