Conchita Hernandez Hicks was born in Havana, Cuba. She and her family lost everything and came to the United States in search of freedom after Fidel
Castro brought socialism and communism to Cuba. Although she was only a little girl when she lived there, she has vivid memories of her life in Cuba.
After living in Miami for a year, Conchita and her family moved to Montevallo, Alabama where her mother joined the faculty at Alabama College and her
father found an accounting job. Most of her growing-up years were spent in Montevallo.
Today, Conchita lives in Alabaster, Alabama with her husband, Barry. She teaches Spanish at Pelham High School in Pelham, Alabama. She enjoys traveling
with her husband whenever time permits.
Conchita is proud to be mother to two fine sons, Alan and Brad, and grandmother to four wonderful grandchildren, Daniel, Abbie, Carson, and Jason.
