I was born in Lawrence, Massachusetts. She was one of the first Latina born at Lawrence Hospital. Daughter of Puerto Rican parents. I am married and the mother of three children. I currently work as a case specialist in the Housing Court in Lawrence And I am a Justice of the Peace. My passion has always been to help my community, especially immigrants who have come here from so many Latin countries. Hispanic Week is in my blood since my mother was one of the founders of this festival in 1979.
