Our Amazing Heritage (we come from the very best!)
Vivian Diaz - Emeritus Senior National Sales Director Before starting her Mary Kay business, Vivian worked as a legal secretary and also as a hairdresser. Her husband, Rudy, was working two part-time jobs in addition to his regular full-time job so that Vivian could stay home with their 2 year-old daughter while she was also expecting their second child. Feeling like a single mom, Vivian looked forward to the day when Rudy didn’t have to work so much to support their family and would be able to enjoy their daughter and their baby on the way. Little did she know that the Mary Kay opportunity would not only allow Rudy to quit two of his part time jobs and be home with the family more, but also have early retirement at the age of 55! Vivian and Rudy have enjoyed raising their three daughters; Kivian, Melissa and Christina, who are all married and raising children of their own.
Vivian started her Mary Kay business after attending an event where she saw a video of Mary Kay Ash awarding Pink Cadillac car keys to achievers. It was the vision that led her to an event where Mary Kay Ash awarded the use of the first Pink Cadillac in New York. Before the event, Vivian said a specific prayer asking God to not only allow her the opportunity to see Mary Kay Ash, but to also have a one on one meeting with her. Vivian explained that if she was granted this opportunity, then she would know that the Mary Kay business was meant for her. Vivian’s prayer was answered when she walked into an elevator that day and there was Mary Kay Ash herself! Vivian was immediately overcome by Mary Kay’s presence and told her that her goal was to one day earn a Pink Cadillac. Mary Kay told Vivian that she knew she could do it and believed that she would; her belief propelled Vivian into action and was the start of her incredible climb to the top! “There were a lot of circumstances that led to that meeting in the elevator,” shares Vivian. “It was divine intervention and it was the fruition of that specific prayer that confirmed my decision to start my Mary Kay business; and it continues to inspire me today.”

Before Mary Kay, Lisa was (and still is) a fitness instructor, PTO President and self-proclaimed “volunteeraholoic”. At no time did she ever see herself starting a Mary Kay career, but after seeing the dramatic change to her acne scarred complexion, falling in love with the skin care products and attending a Special Guest event, Lisa decided to give Mary Kay a try in May 2007. She thought to give her new business six months to see if it was successful. Lisa worked her business as a business, listen to her Director for support and training and in less time than that Lisa earned her first of 8 Mary Kay Career Cars. Today Lisa is a top sales person in our National Area. She has earned Queens Court of Personal Sales for 7 years receiving beautiful prizes and diamonds. Lisa was selected by her peers and was chosen for the most prestigious award in Mary Kay as Miss Go-Give June 2015 in the Diamond Division.

She is married to her husband Glen and they have 4 incredible children. The Hintze family is originally from Cranston, RI and now live in sunny Bradenton, Fl. Lisa is thankful and grateful to God to call this business her career and is excited to continue to pass it on as she reaches for the National position.

Ashley Tamayo, Sales Director
I have been building my business since February 2017. I started my MK business because my husband was going back to school full time and we needed an avenue of extra income. At the time I was working full time as a Director of Sales & Marketing and shortly before my husband started school I lost my bonus and commission. I remember how I felt in that moment as they told me they felt like my salary was fair enough and they didn't need to pay me anything else. That's when I knew I wanted/needed more. I debuted as a Sales Director July 2018. I was then laid off of my full time job in late September 2018. My degree is in Marketing and so is all of my professional experience so for the longest time that's what I thought I had to do. But I just felt this freedom. So I decided to dive in and be ALL IN with my MK business. I LOVE helping women to feel beautiful, loved, empowered, and worthy. I love empowering women to live joyfully and love what they do! I'm a passionate follower of Jesus Christ! Less of me, MORE of Him! I love people! I believe in living a life of purpose, on purpose!
