Administrative support, Communications, and Program

What brought you to GCORR?

I am passionate about the work of GCORR. As someone who is multi-ethnic, I was drawn to the major focus on race and racism in the church.

What languages do you speak?

English and Spanish

What’s the best advice you ever got?

“Not everyone deserves a front row seat in your life.” A longtime mentor told me this, it totally opened my eyes to everyone that I come in contact with.

If you could have one magic item what would it be?

A magic time machine that will allow for travel to different time periods i.e. the 20’s, 40’s, 50’s, the 70’s etc, it would be fun to see what it was like to live during those times.

What is your favorite way to spend a rainy afternoon?

Reading a good book, I love reading! I also love movies, an all-day Netflix binge.

What calls you?

Helping others, learning, travel

If you could go back in time to one historical day, which day would you choose?

August 28, 1963, Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have A Dream” speech and March on the mall in Washington, D.C.  Watching that speech always gives me chills. How amazing it must have been to hear the speech live.


GCORR is building the capacity of The United Methodist Church to be contextually relevant and to reach more people, younger people, and more diverse people as we make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
