Before relocating to Orlando in 1994, Lazo attended the University of Puerto Rico’s Humacao campus to study electronics. He was on vacation in central Florida, but after finding a job as a dishwasher at Disney, he never went back to Puerto Rico. But after a chef asked her if she wanted to learn to cook, her career at the company really took off.
