Waleska was born in Guaynabo Puerto Rico in a Christian family where her religious upbringing exposed her to Pentecostal, Wesleyan and Disciples of Christ denominations. At a young age she was able to recognize the differences were just “man-made” doctrines and that real spirituality was about seeking, following and sharing God’s essence of love. She moved to Westchester, N.Y. in 1999 when her 3 children were very young. In Armonk, she opened her house to Bible Studies, worship team rehearsals and church gatherings because it is within the faith community where she finds her biggest support. She now lives in Stamford where she runs her personal training home studio and enjoys helping others achieve fitness and wellness. In her free time, Waleska enjoys the arts, outdoor activities, reading, cooking and spending time with her loved ones.
