Holy, Engaged and Alive!

Since I was a little girl I have felt God's love burning in my heart. I know He has been there with me every step of the way.

I know how blessed I am to be Catholic and I am grateful I believe, especially when there are so many people who live their whole life without knowing how much Christ loves them. This thought pushes me to share the good news of this great love every day in every way possible.

I believe in finding joy in everything I do, in finding the bright side of every situation and in giving glory to God through work.

I have been blessed with a great husband, Luis, and my two wonderful sons, Victor and Giovanni.

I was born in Puerto Rico, and lived in Norwich, Connecticut, where I served in youth ministry and was part of the Spanish choir at St. Mary Parish. I now belong to St. Willebrord Parish in Green Bay.

My favorite quote is from Blessed Teresa of Calcutta: "God has not called me to be successful; He has called me to be faithful."

Highlights of My Career

  • Being hired at the Diocese where I can live out my faith while helping support my family
  • Figuring out through my jobs how much I enjoy serving/helping others

Something I Am Proud Of

I have six sisters and two brothers (I'm #7 on the list).
