About Me

My educational background is in marketing. I hold a BS in Marketing and Communications from Kean University in New Jersey. In my professional experience, I have done so many types of roles, sales manager, banker, and digital marketer, just to share a few. However, nothing satisfied me the most then to work with children. Currently, I work with special needs children. I was born and raised in Peru I have been living in New Jersey for 20 years, I am married and have two children.

What about the residency are you most looking forward to?

After 10 years of obtaining my bachelor’s degree, I am looking forward to having an amazing virtual education experience and to learn together with the professor and the rest of the residents. Also, I look forward to being part of a great community of educators where we can celebrate and support each other.

Did you have a teacher who made a lasting impression on you?

There were many teachers in my life who encourage me to do better in my life. I can’t remember exactly the names, but all of them were caring, supportive, and had a passion for the content they were teaching.
