I am a native of Puerto Rico. I graduated in 1981 from the University of Puerto Rico in Mayagüez with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and Chemistry (Cum Laude) and received my Masters of Divinity in 1985 from San Francisco Theological Seminary in San Anselmo, CA. I was ordained by the Presbyterian Church USA (PCUSA) in 1986.
I served as Co-Pastor and Pastor of two congregations in Denver, CO and have served in numerous committees and task forces of Presbyterian Church USA. Outside the church, I served as Translator/Interpreter for the Justice Information Center in Denver, CO, a non-profit agency meeting legal and immigration needs. While a Texas resident, I was the translator for the Juvenile, County and District Courts in Dumas, TX.
For twenty (20) years I served the PCUSA as a Capital Campaign Consultant working for Church Financial Campaign Service, now Church Campaign Services, LLC. On June 2013, I accepted the position of Regional Gift Planner for the FL-BH Synod. I sing in my church choir, sing in a community choir and teach a Sunday School class.
