Lizzette & Luis

Lizzette Muniz, an attorney and President of the Brooklyn Bridge Rotary Club, and her husband, Luis, a Nuclear Medicine Technologist, have been married for 15 years, together for 20, and friends for 25.

Sitting in D’Amico Coffee, the dynamic duo thought back to the early days of their relationship. They had become friends back while attending Cardinal Spellman High School in the Bronx.

After high school, she went to Fordham and he attended Manhattan College. Of the time, Luis says simply, “We stayed behind and stayed in touch.” Expanding, Lizzette notes that they “were some of the few commuters from our group.”

Naturally, they grew closer, but they didn’t start dating right away. Lizzette recalls that it was while she watched Luis give a toast as the best man at a wedding that she began to see him in a different light.

“I realized how charming he was,” she explains.

The rest, as they say, is history. Luis proposed to Lizzette while they were vacationing in Mexico.

Teasingly, Luis points out that the first thing she said when he proposed was, “You didn’t get a haircut.”

“I didn’t want to remember that,” Lizzette replies sheepishly.

Eight years ago, their relationship hit another major milestone when the couple welcomed their daughter, Lila, into the world.

How did having a child change their lifestyle?

“[It changed] everything,” Luis replies without missing a beat.

“How didn’t it change?” Lizzette adds, laughing. “After having a baby, we realized we were never going anywhere ever again.”

But despite the changes to their lifestyle, Lizzette and Luis have remained strong as a couple and a family.

How do they make relationships look easy?

“Don’t go to bed angry,” Luis advises. Lizzette thinks for a moment, “And keep your fights between yourselves. You’ll forgive each other, but others might not forgive and forget so easily.”

As for relationship role models, Lizzette and Luis haven’t really had any. They smile at the idea and Luis shakes his head, “No, no one”.

“Recently, Barack and Michelle,” Lizzette notes with tones of admiration

In the end, what matters the most to this dynamic couple is their friendship.

Lizzette explains that the other day on Facebook, she read a post asking people to come up with the name of someone they would most like to sit next to on a park bench for two hours, just talking.

“I thought it was so easy—Luis.” Lizzette explains.

Then, after reading other people’s responses of important historical figures like Abraham Lincoln and Mahatma Gandhi, Lizzette says she thought for a moment about whether she should have chosen someone famous and dead.

“I’d still choose Luis,” she says without hesitation. “I think it’s good I can spend time with someone I want to be with more than anyone else.”

“Will’s experience has allowed him to develop a number of strong client relationships throughout the transportation industry,” Amodei said. “He has also demonstrated the ability to bring diverse entities together for the successful completion of a project.”

Prior to joining STV, Flores was with a major consulting firm where he performed project management duties for the award-winning MTA New York City Transit (NYC Transit) flood mitigation improvement initiative along the Upper West side on 86th street, and in Lower Manhattan on West Broadway; the Help Point emergency communication system, which is located throughout the MTA NYC Transit subway system; track and signal improvements for NYSDOT’s High-Speed Rail Program in Albany, NY; and large security infrastructure enhancements for the MTA’s systemwide security program.
