Professional Background

I spent several years working as a management systems consultant for PriceWaterhouse Coopers based in Arlington, VA. As a consultant, I worked specifically on SAP implementations for Fortune 100 clients located in the US and abroad. This job allowed me to see how many of the products we use on a daily basis are designed, manufactured, and distributed to customers every day. My primary role as a consultant was to create and deliver SAP training in Spanish and English to end-users, on-site. Delivering on-site training gave me the opportunity to travel extensively to Europe and the Caribbean to provide my clients with both end-user training and tech support. After PWC, I worked for several non-profit organizations creating marketing materials (in English and Spanish), planning and executing corporate events, and providing photography services at many of those events.

Faith in Action

I believe in putting faith into action at all times. One way is by using my love of photography and multimedia at school. The students love to be creative and they feel great pride in the video lessons that they have a hand in creating. I love showing my faith to them through the art of photography and media.

Favorite Teaching Moment

Listening to my students sing the Christmas song El Burrito de Belen - all year long.
