Trivia (1)

Her mother was a concert pianist and her father was President of El Salvador.

Born in Hollywood, she grew up in Guatemala where Spanish was her mother tongue. She made her stage debut as a dancer at age five. By the time she left Guatemala at age eight, she had her own television variety show. During her teen years, Luisa lived all over Europe, becoming fluent in French and Italian along the way. She graduated with honors from the H.S. of Performing Arts in N.Y.C., majoring in ballet. At nineteen, she joined the Grand Theatre de Geneve ballet company in Switzerland.

In Hollywood, Luisa successfully amassed many film and television credits. The fact that all her roles were gang girls, hookers, maids and pregnant women, directly led to her desire to write. As a result, Luisa co-founded the highly successful comedy troupe, Latins Anonymous. To date, the play, Latins Anonymous has received over 35 National productions and is taught in several Chicano Studies courses throughout the Southwest.
