Growing up in an immigrant family and the second oldest of eight children, Cecilia learned early on the importance of family values. She was trusted with a great deal of responsibility at home and developed a work ethic that became the foundation for her future endeavours. Cecilia recalls the loving, supportive atmosphere that never faltered and, to this day, this successful businesswoman’s commitment to family is her number one focus.
It’s safe to say Cecilia’s upbringing was steeped in tradition, but outside her front door was a new world just waiting to be explored. She enthusiastically immersed herself into the cultural mosaic of Toronto and embraced it wholeheartedly. For Cecilia, Toronto embodies the very ideals that she values and has served as a strong foundation in the development of the family traditions that have been the cornerstone of her success.
