Claudia was born and raised in Miami, Florida. She was raised by a loving Cuban family who ensured she remained close to her Cuban roots.

In fact, the hard work paid off and as a result of her discipline and dedication not only was she the first in her family to become an attorney in the United States but also she did so with a full-ride scholarship for both her Bachelor degree and law school education.
