Previous School:



I am originally from Venezuela but I have been in the US for over 16 years. I was in the Catholic Seminary to become a Priest for 4 years , then I left the seminary and I worked as a Full Time Youth Minister for 5 years, creating different social justice groups, music bands and leadership workshops. Then I transitioned to the entrepreneurship world creating my own rent a car business in Miami. After 2 years, I decided to join Hertz Rent a Car and worked my way up to the District Manager position in Miami Beach. My educational background includes a double bachelor degree in Philosophy and Theology from Barry University in Miami Shores. Years later, I got a Master Degree in Practical Theology with specialization in Sexuality and Spirituality and Feminism from Barry University and Boston College.
