I was born and raised in Venezuela. I studied Business Administration following my dad’s footsteps not knowing that I had the passion for teaching. After working as an administrator for a few years, a friend at an international school asked me to substitute for a Kindergarten class. I just fell in love with teaching until this day. I’m very passionate for it. I worked at The Magic of Learning in Key Biscayne for 5 years, then met my husband and moved to Palm Beach Gardens.

I enjoy all the children, their families and coming to work each day at our school. It is the best feeling when the children come in every day, happy to be here. I have made the best of friends and love everyone at Tree Top. I consider them my family here in America. Some of my favorite things to do is cook and go to the movies.
