  • My Story

    After coming to know the Lord when I was 17, I started to plant churches and work bi-vocationally as Missionary and English teacher in Dominican Republic. After returning to Puerto Rico, I finished my BA and worked as an Interpreter/Translator for the Social Security Administration while bi-vocationally pastoring. I also worked as a Business Development Officer for Scotiabank and founded a church and school which I led for more than 20 years. Then, I transitioned into Higher Education teaching at Belhaven and currently, at North Greenville University. My passion has always been to share the gospel with young people using both my job/business as platforms for lifting up the name of Jesus.
    I raised three children who are solid Christians, and my son is a pastor

    Favorite Course to Teach:

    Introduction to Business or Marketing – I enjoy seeing the intellectual and spiritual growth of students as they go through the time in university and launch into their careers/ministries.
