Marilu co-owns a small printing company in Florida with her husband. She holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the Universidad Central de Venezuela and an Associate of Applied Science degree in film and TV production. She spent four years writing for a Venezuelan news radio station and a year as a reporter for a local TV channel before moving to the United States in 2000 with her husband. When their second child was born—in 2004—they opened their printing business. In 2014, Marilu separated from her husband. After 2 turbulent years of depression, anxiety, and uncertainty, they managed to redefined their family and get back together for good. She was inspired to write her first book—What’s In the Way of Your Happiness?—during this time.
