Since I was a child, I knew my path in life was to help people and make a change in society. In 1996, I began my studies in general science at the Pontifical Catholic University in Puerto Rico and obtained a Bachelor's Degree in General Science. In 1998, I joined the U.S. Army and served for 7 years as a combat medic. I earned various awards during my time in the Army. I am an Enduring Freedom and Noble Eagle Veteran. In 2009, I enrolled at Texas Chiropractic College earning a Bachelor of Science in Human Biology. While at Texas Chiropractic College I participated in the work-study program tutoring in the YMCA outreach program. I tutored various subjects including math and reading. I have helped children who were unable to speak English to be able to communicate and write in English. When my time ended in the work-study program I decided to keep volunteering as a tutor. I was chosen to be the 2012 Volunteer of the Year for the local YMCA.
During my time at the YMCA, I realized that besides a passion for pursuing a Chiropractic degree I also love, guiding, mentoring and teaching children. It was then I realized my calling in life. In 2012, I decided to turn my life in this direction and pursue a career in education. I am working towards my teaching certification with Web Centric Alternative Certification. Currently, I am working at a charter elementary school - Ripley House in the Fraga Pre-Kindergarten Center for Neighborhood Centers as a paraprofessional. I am eager share my knowledge to help, teach and improve your children’s academics. I am fluent in English and Spanish.
