The daughter of a professional soccer player, her father was an immigrant from Argentina who came to America to start a new life and family. He was a family man, a foreman at a silk factory, and he learned English and became an American citizen. Her mother is Puerto Rican and she was a waitress and worked many jobs to care for her children. Ingrid is the youngest of four children. When she was two years old, her parents were in a serious car accident in which her father died at the age of 30. Her mother was severely injured and was never the same again.
Ingrid understands the challenges of being raised by a single parent who worked multiple jobs to keep the family together. Her mother taught her strong work ethics, fiscal responsibility, and the importance of education. Her mother struggled to put her children through private schools because she wanted a better future for her children.
Sacrifice, Dedication and Commitment are the core of Ingrid Centurion. Ingrid was an exceptional athlete, played basketball, soccer, and softball, and was awarded multiple college scholarships. A leader in sports and in the military, she received an Army ROTC three-year scholarship to Arizona State University. She then earned a Masters Degree in Aviation Operations and Management from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.
She is a common sense, straight-forward leader who enjoys data, facts, technology and making a difference. Ingrid has worked as a Product Manager, Universal Tactical Robotic Controller (TRC), and as a Corporate Trainer and Motivational Speaker.
She has been a resident of Sudbury for eight years where both her boys attended Lincoln-Sudbury High School. She is actively involved in her community supporting veterans and small business owners and owns her own small business focused on safety, team building, and training. Ingrid and her entire family have been blessed to live the American Dream — the idea that anyone, through hard work and determination, can achieve anything. And she is committed to ensuring every family has that same opportunity.
