She is a graduate of the Mapua Institute of Technology, holding a double degree in mechanical and chemical engineering.

The PCCI has had the Philippine government’s ear and guidance in formulating policies that will spur businesses and economic growth. Its members, especially the MSMEs, have also relied on PCCI leadership to take on the cudgels for them, represent them on all fronts, and speak as a solid voice of business.
