Her interest in fighting for the rights of others was probably pre-destined, as Ada comes from a long line of high-profile public servants. Her grandfather, Justo Luis Pozo, was the last man to serve as Mayor of Havana, Cuba prior to the government’s overthrow by Castro. Her father, Dr. Rolando Pozo, was the island nation’s last Surgeon General prior to Castro’s takeover. The family subsequently immigrated to the U.S. and settled in Florida, where Ada was born and raised.
Ada is married to Former Broward County Court Judge Eric M. Beller, and has two children, a daughter aged seventeen and a son, twenty-one. She holds both Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees from Florida International University, where she majored in Criminal Justice (B.S.) and Sociology/Anthropology (B.A.).
