I am a very passionate person that likes to work intensely day in and day out. In my professional sphere my goal is to help people begin or continue their businesses with the best practices available in the legal area and in the realm of HR on both sides of the US-Mexico border. Each day I learn from my clients and I am always amazed at human talent and its unlimited reaches. There is nothing more satisfying than to see my clients be successful in their business ventures and to know that somehow I have been able to contribute to that success as a strategic partner.
On the personal side I love the sun and the sea. I love extreme sports like surfing, kayaking and rappelling - they give me a spiritual space in direct contact with nature and I really feel like they help me recharge energies. I love each moment of life and each challenge that comes up, especially the ones that force me to come up with creative strategies to overcome them due to their complexity. I am deeply affected by seeing injustice committed in so many sectors of society and that is why one of my short term goals is to design an initiative to empower women, particularly underprivileged women in order to help them become self sufficient.

Aideé is one of Merry Crate’s founders and she stared with this business idea at the beginning of 2015. She is a living testimony. After surviving cancer, she decided to actively share from her experience and create awareness about how eating all natural organic products allows for a happier life away from harmful ingredients and their negative effects on the body.
Aideé studied a BA in Business Administration, a master’s degree in Education and Communication, and recently she was certified as a health coach. She has directed the operation of international projects and became an entrepreneur in 2010 for the first time, when a friend invited her to join him in founding the most important network of daycares centers in Mexico and Colombia: ADVENIO Corporate Daycare. After this entrepreneurship and once she was recovered from her cancer she was ready to startup something new, different and, why not, crazy!
