Francesca Escoto-Zavala likes to describe her life in bullet points:
- Born and raised in the Dominican Republic, shaped and molded in the outskirts of Boston
- Educated in between cultures and countries by mothers, fathers, aunts, grandparents, Worcester Polytechnic Insitute’s engineering curriculum, Christian leaders, and graduate school professors at Bentley
- Transformed by God’s amazing grace
- Infused with lessons on love, forgiveness and animal instincts through marriage and giving birth to three daughters
- Intense reader of all things geek: technology, coding, leadership, entrepreneurship, mental health
- In touch with all things beautiful, from a ballerina’s pirouette to yarn being crocheted, to a cappella choirs, to the color of nature
- Wanna-be athlete who enjoys all kinds of ethnic foods way more than exercising
- Passionate about life as an experiment on the interaction of human resilience and God’s relentless faithfulness
Somewhere in between, she obtained her Industrial Engineering Management degree, became a Certified Life Coach (CPC), Energy Leadership Index Master Practitioner (ELI MP), taught myself web development, got “A”s in graduate business courses, and became a serial entrepreneur (not necessarily in that order).

Her first book, “Divorce Your Own Drama: Courage To Make The Tough Choices That Are Worth Every Tear”, was born out of a desire to encourage and empower mujeres to live courageously, embracing the beauty of womanhood and the power of personal choice. This book was the result of having to make many personal sacrifices in order to break out of dysfunctional family patterns.
