Adalyd Gracia is a true reflection of a modern woman who challenges convention and with fierce determination, beats all odds to achieve her dreams.
Having started a career in banking when she was 20 years old, Adalyd has risen through the ranks to become the current Assistant Vice-President of Credit Quality Assurance at a national Bank in Miami, Florida. She prides herself on over 20 years of experience in the banking industry with expertise in finance, quality assurance, process improvement, and project management.
Adalyd holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Finance from the University of Puerto Rico, and a Master’s Degree in Leadership and Project Management from Ana G. Mendez University in Miami, FL. She is also an Agile Profesional, Scrum Master (Agile-Alliance), Scrum Product Owner, and holds the Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification. Having moved to the U.S. with her son as a single mother, Adalyd maintained a fierce focus and through perseverance and discipline, built her expertise in finance and dance. She danced ballet and jazz for 10 years and taken additional dancing classes in ballet, hip-hop, modern dance, and flamenco, adding up to a cumulative 15 years of dancing. As she believes there is always a second chance, Adalyd is happily married and has a baby girl, after 18 years.
As a mother, attaining such bountiful achievements has not been easy for Adalyd. Today, she seeks to motivate women and help them build their confidence as they intend to go back to school to attain their first degree or advance their education. From her experiences, Adalyd challenges women to adopt an assertive “go-getter” attitude and pursue their goals fearlessly or a guilty conscience (especially women with family responsibilities). While fear of failure is a major discourager, Adalyd helps women to extract crucial lessons from past failure and march forth without fear on their way to success in achieving what they want, like, and love.
An avid reader, in her free time, Adalyd loves to read an array of topics including women empowerment, confidence, process improvement and project management, family, relationships, parenting, motivational readings, and the Bible. Importantly, she is continually seeking to improve herself to be a better person to love and help her family and friends.
And as she says: Be Quality, Be Agile!!
