While learning from her mom's experiences, she chose to make wiser decisions once becoming a single parent in her early 20's. Aria was determined to excel against stigmas and stereotypes. With a spirit of tenacity and character of trailblazing, she pursued a Bachelors in Technical Management and Masters in Business Administration while raising her son by encouraging his leadership abilities, talents and victories.

From the praises and compliments that she received about parenting her son, Aria decided to write a series of books entitled The Single Mother Diaries - empowerment tools that offer tips on single, divorced and co-parenting strategies. She has mentored other single parents with making wiser decisions that benefit them and the development of their children (of all ages). Aria is now married with three beautiful step-children and has established a wonderful newfound connection with her father and paternal family.
