As the daughter of Dominican immigrants, I have always understood the value of education and how access to educational opportunities can empower individuals to succeed.

Education in its broadest sense is the foundation of our existence.  We are always learning new things in order to stay relevant and to continue developing personally and professionally.

My passion is to inspire and empower others to succeed in their personal and professional endeavors.

I am honored to have been part of the learning process for thousands of individuals through my work with K-12 schools, colleges and universities, small businesses, non-profits, companies of all sizes, and individuals like you.  My goal is to empower as many people as possible through my work!



Now available online at Amazon, Barnes and Nobles, Books a Million, and Books and Books!

Now is the time to stop and reflect so that you can prepare for a better tomorrow!  The 90-Day Reflection Journal guides you through a structured reflection process that focuses on daily lessons learned and that can be applied to any aspect of your personal or professional life.  In addition to the 90 days of reflection, the journal includes post-reflection activities that help you (a) identify growth opportunities, (b) establish goals, and (c) track those goals so that you can live a fuller and more intentional life.
