Throughout my career I've worn many hats and worked in a number of fields including restaurant and retail operations, banking, financial services, project management, public relations, community health, higher education, and publishing.
All of this, (and more!), led me to become a health educator who specializes in mental, emotional, and spiritual health education and promotion. I am also a writer and publisher in these subjects.
How I got here is not that unusual. Life and burning curiosity actually led me.
In 1998, I left a wonderful career in the financial services sector to pursue advanced degrees in community counseling and community health education because these fields of study felt like what I sorta wanted to do.
In 1999 I became a mother (at age 34, and then again at age 37). In 2006, I became a parent-caregiver to my first-born daughter, Serena, who was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis that year. I mention these 3 dates and events because together, they deeply informed me, as well as weaved a profound yet non-conceptual understanding of life.

However, my passion and expertise is concentrated in these areas:
Being born and raised on the beautiful island of Puerto Rico made me keenly aware of race, culture, and language. I am bi-lingual and multi-cultural. As I've grown in my own self-awareness, I've come to realize that I'm an empath and someone with a neuro-divergent brain. In many ways these have been my greatest kryptonite, but also, and most importantly, my greatest superpowers.
My evolving work in health education, coupled with my personal journey through grief, led me to the field of sound, vibration, and light modalities.
Currently, I'm studying and learning new things in what I call 'health harmonics', which aims to support our understanding of these areas:
