As a storyteller, leader, and Emmy-nominated TV host, I've learned that "You can't be what you can't see." That's why I have worked tirelessly to stand up, speak out, and share the inspiring stories of women via my work at prestigious publications like Glamour, InStyle, and Woman's Day, as well by serving as the Founding Hamptons Editor for PureWow; the Founding Contributing Editor for Cosmo for Latinas; Editor-In-Chief of TheFetching.com; and most recently, the Editor-In-Chief and Co-President of Latina Media Ventures. Latina Media Ventures is the #1 brand for Latinas in the United States with three signature properties: the flagship Latina Magazine; Latina.com, and TheLatinKitchen.com As Editor-In-Chief and President of Latina, I revitalized a legacy brand into a digital powerhouse and launched our first ever digital magazine issues. In addition, I launched our profitable ecommerce site, our popular influencer program, and our empowering event series: LatiNXT. As a regular contributor to Today for more than 10 years and brand personality with two other books around lifestyle themes and identity for women under my belt—Borderline Personalities (Harper Collins;) Practically Posh (Harper Collins)— I've become adept at harnessing the power of voice and personality on every major media platform from TV to online. I have been invited to the Whitehouse, the Sundance Film Festival, and SXSW Interactive; and have interviewed powerhouse women from Rihanna to Latina activist Dolores Huerta, Jennifer Lopez to Hillary Clinton, and beyond. As a popular keynote speaker, I've presented at Hispanicize, The Omega Institute, BlogHer, Pennsylvania Conference for Women, Texas Conference for Women, and Yale University among others. I'm currently writing a new book, Finding My Magic, which is a journey of re-discovery and reclamation of both my culture and myself. I am certified yoga teacher and life coach and I live in Cold Spring, New York with my two spirited daughters and my supportive hubby, Sven.

Just in time for the holidays, we gathered delicious recipes from our First Ladies of the United States. The varied dishes are as effortless, approachable, and elegant as the powerful women who enjoyed them.
