LaToya Rodriguez

LaToya is loving life in Corpus Christi. Although she is not a native Texan she claims she got here as fast as she could! She graduated high school and college in Corpus Christi, and considered moving, as a newlywed but decided to stay close to family and friends. She easily makes new friends everywhere she goes, and is extremely excited to be apart of the CC Moms Blog. As a working wife and mother of two she is always on the go. You will most likely catch her jamming to gansta rap when her kids aren't around, at the beach with her family, or representing Aflac at local events. She loves the outdoors, but enjoys a good Netflix binge, or reading a book in one sitting.
