Liliana Andriani was born and raised in Cali, Colombia. She came to the United States in 1986 and established a small jewelry repair booth in 1987 at an indoor swap meet in the city of Pomona. In 1989 she opened Angel Jewelers in the city of Rancho Cucamonga and has been serving this community ever since. Her commitment and dedication have allowed her to stay in business for decades, but it is her spirit of giving back and her involvement in the community that differentiate her.
Liliana is grateful for her profession because it has allowed her to provide jobs to her three employees, to connect with many people and to establish strong relationships. She says her business, Angel Jewelers, serves as the platform for her to do what brings the deepest reward and fulfillment which is giving back to the community. Liliana helps to promote growth by supporting education and empowering others. For many years, Liliana has supported Chaffey College, the local community college where she started her educational journey taking ESL classes and eventually graduating in 2004 with her Associate Business Degree. She currently serves as a Board Director of the Chaffey College Foundation.
Liliana has a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from the University of La Verne.
Liliana invests her time and effort in supporting organizations that promote economic growth in the community, and in particular, small businesses. She is an active business advocate in the City of Rancho Cucamonga and currently serves as the President Chairwoman of the Rancho Cucamonga Chamber of Commerce (2020 – 2021)
