As a proud product and a 20+ year administrative career with the NYC K-12 Public Schools and Adult Education programs, I know the value of quality education. I was born and raised in the East New York Section of Brooklyn, NY, and am of Puerto Rican descent.  East New York is an impoverished area with high crime and low graduation rates.


With a bachelor’s in business administration and a master’s in education, it was a big accomplishment for me to return to my alma mater middle school as a sixth-grade Math and English language arts teacher. I wanted to show my students that they can accomplish any goals they set successfully. These meaningful and enriching teaching experiences led to several career opportunities outside the classroom. Throughout my career, I held such additional titles as math and literacy coach, character education facilitator, grant writer, mentor, and school administrator. 


I have facilitated countless professional development opportunities for teachers, school leaders, and students. I also mentored several teachers to aspire and successfully received school administrative and Principalship positions. I was also a guest speaker at a middle school women's history month event and leadership class in Charlotte, North Carolina where I spoke on the importance of youth empowerment and entrepreneurship. Lastly, I have been interviewed on several podcasts and blogs as well as developing and hosting a Youtube segment where we interview successful women of various careers and businesses. 


With a successful educational and business career, I felt that I could use my experience to do more to help others on a larger scale. I wanted to combine my


continued passion for teaching and mentoring educators as well as students while building school climate and community relations. All of this led to the creation of the GLAM SQUAD and now the inception of the G.E.N.T Youth Enrichment Programs. Girls Leadership and Mentorship (G.L.A.M.) SQUAD and Gentlemen Entrepreneurial Networking Team (G.E.N.T) programs encourages and empowers our young scholars to explore and celebrate their individuality through engaging cooperative learning lessons on self-identity, self-discovery, and self-love in their entrepreneurial abilities. Our goal is to enlighten and inspire our youth to reach their full potential as they seek to achieve their educational, and career aspirations and prepare them to be our future leaders of tomorrow.
