My Name is Yuly Marcela Monsalve, and I am from Medellin Colombia. I spent the early part of my career in various roles across diverse business industries including restaurants, administration, health care clinic administration, retail, hospitality and customer service.
I immigrated to the U.S. in 2018 with personal and family commitments leading me in deciding to focus and restart to pursue greater professional opportunities and generate wealth for myself. In 2020, I relocated to the greater Atlanta area in Georgia, which is known for its diverse and supportive immigrant communities. I leveraged my prior work experience in Colombia to secure employment in the restaurant and banquet industry. It allowed me time to master reading, writing and speaking English as a second language as well as appropriately acculturate to living in a new culture.
My career changing opportunity came across while working in hospitality around professional individuals where I was able to obtain an educational position initially as administrative assistant for Commonwealth. The financial services environment motivated me with a new vision and expanded my education goals where I am now an Insurance agent with skills for helping others and myself to achieve the quality life we all deserve.
